My Updates

Well 2 posts in a week...don't get too used to it...LOL! The weather is changing and I'm settling in..so I hope to post more often.
Here is an update on my WIP's...this a monthly chart of Inky Dinky Blackwork by Sandra Dering

this JBW is being done on a lovely 55ct...yes 55 ct linen from France.
My friend Clare is always setting me up with a smaller count..this is  soooo small but stunning. Hold a dime in your hand and picture it! Dani took the picture at the GTG.

Dani and Christin gave me this pretty little pair of Dovo Scissors for my BDay.  they are so luxurious..and to finish it off Kathy gave me the hand made fob with a lighthouse for stitching on the RR.
Thanks ladies!

Bonnie gifted me with these retractable sharpies highlighters..they are so great Thanks Bonnie!

Dani put her touch on My MIRA RR.(left bottom) oh it is stunning...lots of bling.My favorite!Love it Dani.

CdeC I'm on a mission to finish it.
Well folks have a good day and stitch with happy fingers!

MIRA RR looks gorgeous, so effective like that.

And everything else seems to be progressing beautifully. From someone who doens't seem to have touched her stitching in a couple of weeks, I'm really quite jealous!

Deborah said...

MIRA RR is really stunning! The snowmen are very cute.

Vonna said...

Your blackwork is stunning Beatrice! And a mission to finish the CdC...oh my, I've been thinking about my own languishing sadly by itself.
And your Mira RR...GORGEOUS!

Blu said...

Lots of gorgeous progress.
I'm noticing a lot of people working on their CdCs right now. Maybe I should get mine out again...

Brigitte said...

Wow, Beatrice, you've got a couple of gorgeous WIPs. And all with some nice progress.
I have already seen a couple of these Mirabilia RRs and they are all stunning. Like yours!
I have never tried stitching on a 55ct fabric and I'm not sure if my old eyes would cooperate, lol. But the look of the stitching on a small count is so fine and delicate.

Kathy A. said...

Nice work there girl. I still think you are crazy for doing over 1 on 55 count.
Glad you liked your fob!

Bette said...

The RR is stunning! I never would have thought to do something like that. And I love the snowmen. Very cute! 55 CT? Not for this gal. But more power to you if you can handle it.

Clare said...

Your 55 ct looks amazing and I am going to go get mine out. Cannot let you finish yours first-lol!

Lynn said...

It was fun to see all your stitchy updates! I love the blackwork piece with all those colours.
55 ct! Wow, that's amazing. I didn't even know there was such a thing.

Dani - tkdchick said...

Wow Beatrice what a treat with two posts in such a short span of time!

All of your WIPs are looking great.

Can't wait to see you next weekend!

Kim B said...

Well you have been hard at work Beatrice! That 55ct is truly amazing!

Suzanne said...

Love your blackwork piece, very cute! Nice work on CdC, not long to go now.

What fine work on the 55ct, I am jealous, I have wanted to try some forever.
