A Happy Dance!..Edited-thanks Cath and Julianne

Edited: I went out to visit a friend just after sending the post and when i got home thunder and lightning started so better not get online. Glad it didn't take long. Thanks so much Cath and Julianne for the scan-of the Margaret Sherry design.

What would you do in between packing and sorting with no internet?? Stitching!!!


Summer Breeze
Prairie Schooler book no. 137
32ct belfast linen
DMC threads


While sorting, i had found one of the unfinished RR and thought to do the two blocks.


I had only added my printed copy with the piece when i put it aside before, now i cannot see clearly the different colour for the purple flower.

I don't like to go and open up boxes to see where the original copy is. Does anyone have this design and can scan it for me? I really appreciate it.

Also found an unfinished hardanger which i nearly threwn away before when i made a mistake pulling out the wrong thread. I was nearly finished with it when it happened.

As you can see below where i went wrong. I decided to finish it off and will use it one day, i think not everyone will notice the mistake....i hope!


I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Thanks so much for stopping by and all the wonderful comments. I really appreciate them all!

Hi Mylene
Summer Breeze looks wonderful. Do you have a special place for it in your new house? I am sure it would look great anywhere.
I love the hardanger too. I have never tried that. I can't see where you went wrong. It looks pefect to me.
Sorry I don't have that chart. I hope you get it without having to open your boxes.
Happy stitching and packing.

I love the PS finish, Mylene! Well done! Your RR piece is so cute and fun - I've never seen that one before - good luck finding the pattern. I think your hardanger looks just fine - do something with it - it's too pretty to tuck away.

Erica said...

Summer Breeze is spectacular! Just love the colors!

Wow! What great pieces. The PS one looks spectacular. And the hardanger is just too beautiful.

Hope you get someone to help you out on the chart side. Too many boxes to go rummaging through!

Debra said...

Wow, wonderful finishes. I can't see anything wrong with the hardanger. I have stitched some of those patterns and I think I still have the patterns. Give me a day or two to see if I can find it.

Prachtig borduurwerk en hardanger Mylene, en zelfs de dozen zijn netjes ingepakt :)

Your hardanger is beautiful! Enjoy it and don't worry about mistakes. It's all part of handcrafting and only makes a piece more beautiful.

Deb said...

I think that your hardanger piece looks fine and no one will know the difference. I say put it out where everyone can admire it. Wish I could help you out with the pattern, but I've never seen it before. And love your PS finish - it looks wonderful!

Lizy said...

Hi,
I really enjoy seeing your round it so pretty !!!!

mainely stitching said...

I didn't realize you did hardanger, too, Mylene. It's gorgeous. I'm glad you're using it and I doubt anyone will notice that one tiny error. :)

Kay said...

Your hardanger piece is beautiful, I don't think anyone will notice at all. I love your PS finish also, I love the RR you are working on it is so cute!!!!!!!

Vinniey said...

Congrats on your Summer Breeze finished. Your "nursery rhymes" blocks looks great and cute! I'm sure my daughters will like it very much. May I know who is the designer? Your hardanger piece looks pretty. I don't think anyone will notice your mistake if you place some decor on top of it. :)

Corina said...

Mooie borduurwerken maak je! Goed dat je dat hardangerwerk toch afgemaakt heb, zonde om te laten liggen - veel te mooi!

Carol said...

Don't you love stitching on Prairie Schooler piece, Mylene? They just always leave me feeling comforted... Your Summer Breeze sampler is just lovely. Gosh, summer is almost here--guess I should begin some summer stitching of my own :)

Continued luck with all of your packing...

Kathy said...

That PS finish is fabulous! I love it.
Your Margaret Sherry one is just darling. I'm glad you were able to get what you needed so you can finish it.
And your hardranger? Just beautiful. I would definately keep it. mistake and all. Heck you can always use it on a table and put a figurine on the spot with the mistake. :)

Lisa S said...

Love your PS finish Mylene!!

The RR your working on is adorable!
Your hardanger is beautiful!! I would still use it anyway as I don't think anyone would notice the error.

Good luck with your packing

Hugs

Edit said...

Mylene, your PS finish is absolutely lovely. I wish I would have more time to stitch PS pictures, if I could I would fill the whole flat with them :)

Good luck with the packing, too, but take time to stitch as well, one always need some time to relax and get back the energy lost.

Best wishes, Edit

Nita said...

MaryT said...
