Challenge Finishes 1 and 2

Hello blogger friends!

A few people have said they're missing my daily posts so, to satisfy their withdrawal symptoms, I'm posting this sooner than anticipated. So much for taking a posting holiday!!

I have a couple of cute little Challenge finishes to share with you. These were my smallest two pieces so it's not surprising they were finished first.


First up, Waterlogged from 26th February. I only had the backstitching to do so he took just over an hour to finish.

Waterlogged
Stitch count 36 wide by 33 high
Stitched on 16ct Light Blue Aida 2 over 1
Started - 26th February 2015
Finished - 1st March 2015
Total stitching time - 4 hours 15 minutes


Secondly, Puddle Duck from 12th February. He only needed his wellies, the puddle and the backstitching so was finished fairly quickly too.

Puddle Duck
Stitch count 29 wide by 34 high
Stitched on 16ct Light Blue Aida 2 over 1
Started - 12th February 2015
Finished - 2nd March 2015
Total stitching time - 4 hours 20 minutes


I haven't shopped for a frame yet but intend to mat, frame and hang them..... somewhere!

There, are your withdrawal symptoms passing now? Have I filled a little hole of sadness? Can I return to my posting holiday?!!!

Love and hugs
Rachel x

PS There's still time to enter the blogoversary giveaway if you haven't already done so. See the 3rd March posting for details.
