Spring - finished

Good morning one and all!

I have this month's finish from my DSDUCJFC 2015 WIPs. This is Spring from The Four Seasons; a companion for Winter which I finished last month and for Autumn completed in 2015. It's finish number 28 out of the 59 starts for the Challenge so I'm very nearly half way there!

At the end of last month I left it like this:

And now completed:

Designed by Maria Diaz and featured in Cross Stitch Crazy issue ???
Stitch count 56 wide by 56 high
Stitched on 16ct white aida 2 over 1
Started - 1st February 2015
Finished - 7th February 2018
Total stitching time - 20 hours 50 minutes

And with the other two:

I will be finishing Summer this year, although not for a few months yet. Maybe that was bad planning but in the meantime I've lots of other lovely (in my opinion anyway!) pieces to work on and finish.

2018 has been good for me so far, stitching and finishing wise, and I don't often thank you for the wonderful, positive and encouraging comments you have been leaving. So, thank you one and all! Towards the end of last year I was seriously contemplating giving up on my blog... I'm so glad I didn't!

Take care,
Rachel x

It looks great Rachel and WOW the three of them together look amazing! I can't wait to see Summer later this year. Looking forward to seeing what you pick up next.

SO glad you are going to continue blogging. I love seeing your finishes.

Beautiful finish! I like the snapshot of all in a row:) It's nice that you decided to continue with blogging. It is good to share work with people having similar hobbies even though it consumes a substantial amount of time reading and writing blog posts.

Oh that would have broke my heart. I love reading your blog and seeing what beautiful stitching you've been up to. So I'm glad you decided not to stop too. Another beautiful finish. Love this series too. As always haha.

These are lovely. I really like that it is the same view in each one but with very different colours.
I am glad that you didn't stop blogging too. Even if I am binge reading tonight!

Wow I love these Four Seasons! My favorite is Winter, it looks really effective. Plus I love Winter. Oh please don't stop blogging! I've finally got my new computer so I'm catching up with everyone's blogs and loving all the different stitching.
