January Challenge – Day 2

It took me longer than I expected to finish my little Baby Lorikeets, but I just couldn’t continue to start a new project until I had finished them off – and here they are in their finished form:

DMC-Baby Lorikeets
“Baby Lorikeets” by DMC

stitched on 32ct cream Belfast linen
(I replaced the revolting Aida that was in the kit!)
with kit threads (DMC)

I didn’t start today’s ‘real’ project until 8pm … and didn’t put the needle down until just before 3am – I’m LOVING stitching this one!  I’ve never been a huge Shepherd’s Bush fan apart from their needlerolls and Halloween designs, but this one really called out my name and I’m glad I listened – the pastels of this one are really very pretty (unfortunately washed out in the photo thanks to the bright daylight bulb).  I can’t wait for the 15 days to be up so I can c0me back and finish this one off, although I might just have to finish off this middle bug tomorrow, as I only have a couple of letters and the big central flower to complete before moving on to a different bug 😀

And on that note, I’d better get some sleep,  so I’m fit to do a bit more stitching tomorrow (although I really do have to throw in some housework tomorrow, so not as much progress will be to show at the end of it all tomorrow!).

  1. Wow, you are steamrolling your way through! You are a really fast stitcher, even with the backstitches, etc. The ‘keets are so sweet and I can’t wait to see the SB finished. You are like a day ahead of me here, so it’s fun to see what you’ve accomplished before I’ve even begun! 🙂

  2. Holy smoke, my hair is blowing back from the breeze as you fly through your challenge projects! I predict you will have no trouble at all getting them finished this year. Congrats on your Lorikeets finish, the SB project is super cute!

  3. I have such happy memories of the lorikeets at a zoo I used to take the kids to regularly when we lived in Holland. 😀 GREAT choice for a finish!
