First Update for June

I titled this post that because I really couldn't think of another title, but it is true there will be more post this month. I am so happy that summer has finally arrived here in VA and I mean it came in with a bang! We have had about four or five days in the 80s, but I'm not complaining it took forever to get warm. I have a couple of pictures of a piece I saw on Facebook that is just fa-nominal!

This is stitched by a young lady from Belgium by the name of Andrea De Wael. She doesn't state in the post about the size of the fabric other than it may be 14 or 16 threads so I'm guessing this is Aida fabric. I don't know how many designs are on this one piece of fabric but they are all Little House Needleworks Designs and she stitched the ones she liked. I thought this was amazing and just had to share it. Okay now for my updates.  I have still been working on my cloudsfactory "Game of Thrones Banner & Houses" and this is my progress.
Once I finish the last castle in this section I may put this one aside for a little and work on something different. I saw another set of designs also on Facebook and I had to have them, they are The Hogwarts Crest and the crest of each of the four schools.
 I got the charts for these from The World In Stitches and they are designed by Colleen Carrington. You just scroll down until you see the crest  on the blog. After finding these wonderful charts for my husband's and daughter's favorite show and movie I wanted something that I liked too so I looked up "The Walking Dead" and found this one from Pixelsinstitches. I just love these characters there is Rick, Carl, Glenn, Maggie, Beth & Judith, Daryl, Carol, Hershel and of course Michonne.
And they actually look like people with legs and bodies. So cute!  Last but not least I finally received my set of new coloris flosses from Stitchy Box  these are by DMC.

It's 24 skeins in the set and I'm excited to try some of them out. That being said I'm going to make some beautiful little xxs. See you next time and thanks for visiting.

Oh my, this Needleworker piece is just stunning. I admire this stitcher's perseverance of finishing such a big piece. But it must have been fun.
Great progress on your WIP and nice new stash for some more stitching fun.

Hi Minnie, I'm thinking of stitching the banners, can I ask how long approximately one takes?

Heather said...

Lovely progress Minnie!

Julie said...

Lots of things to keep you busy.
That's a stitch project and a half with all the LHN designs on it.

Minnie said...

Kate N - With no distractions I could stitch a complete banner and castle in about a day.

I've seen that Needleworker piece before. It is incredible!

Love your progress on the GoT banners. You really are into your TV stitching right now!
