I'm a few days late

For the 1st Wipocalypse of 2013 but better late than never:-)  I have a couple of finishes to share, the first is "Spring Heart" this was a freebie I found at http://olgamaxden.blogspot.com and I just loved trying the specialty stitches. This was before I started working on the AW80S and I finally finished it. Her blog is in Russian and I can't read a thing but the charts are beautiful, this one you can find by scrolling down and looking on the left hand sidebar.

 This is stitched with DMC #552 medium violet on 25ct black Lugana with iridescent purple seed beads. The second finish I have was actually done this weekend while participating in the SWAT hosted by the group I'm in on About.com Cross Stitch.  This SAL last all week starting on Saturday the 26th and ending this coming Saturday the 2nd of Feb.  You stitch as much or as little as you can on what ever you like and know that somewhere in the world someone is stitching with you.  This chart I had started already and I was able to finish it last night.  It is "My Needle and My Floss, They Comfort Me",  from Waxing Moon Designs and is stitched on 28ct tea-dyed Irish Linen with DMC floss.
I will be starting a new chart by my favorite designer Joan Elliott, I found it in a book "Cross Stitch Angels" it's called Angels of the World. I will be stitching it with DMC floss on 28ct Pewter Blue Lugana. It is finished as a small banner in the book so I will be trying that when it's stitched.


Welcome to my new followers and thank you to you all, I hope you return often and leave comments, I really enjoy them and try to respond to everyone.  Well it's time to get back to stitching so I will have some progress to show next time, so I'm off to make some wonderful little xxs.

Wow, this purple heart on the black fabric looks just gorgeous. The black makes the purple colour stand out and you can see the specialty stitches very well. Also your second finish looks great.
Good luck with your new start!
