Final Operation Threadporn Finish!

Before I show my final Operation Threadporn finish, here is an update on the goals situation:

  • Finish A Flamestitch - DONE
  • Finish Summer (Autumn) Tree of Stitches 
  • Start and finish my final Autumn/Winter new start - Catherine Agnes by Indigo Rose
  • Complete October, November and December SOTW Hardanger squares - DONE
  • Complete Snow Poem Tree by Erynne Chard (freebie, blog no longer available)  - DONE
  • Complete Winter Solace by By The Bay Needlearts (freebie from a past BTB newsletter) - DONE

  • No stash spends for the remainder of the year unless I run out of AVAS on Flamestitch - still  staying strong, only black AVAS purchased for A Flamestitch
  • Try and properly finish a few things here and there
  • Kit up a few projects from stash in preparation for next year! - DONE

  • So just two projects to carry forward to December, Summer Tree of Stitches and Catherine Agnes to start and finish!

    Here is my finish of Erynne Chards's Snow Tree Poem.  In the end I decided to keep it simple with just one colour of silk and beads, but did go with two colours of metallic as PTB15 is one of my faves and I couldn't resist!
    Snow Poem Tree by Erynne Chard
    It was hard to photograph as it is so sparkly with all the metallic and AB delicas!  The fabric is 28ct Jazlyn Twilight Enchantment by The Crafty Kitten and the threads are Night Smoke 5301 (HDF) and PTB 10 and 15.
    I will write a post at the end of the month on Operation Threadporn, my thoughts and musings on this year long undertaking of mind - including the final tally of threads used for the year of course!
