Here comes another finish.
Simply Wren was the 14th start for last year's Spring Into Summer New Start Binge and is now the 4th finish. It is also the last bird in this set of four Solos by Valerie Pfeiffer (and the last time I shall make a comment about doing so many fractionals on aida!)
Here's how I picked it up:
After finishing the stitching:
And after the backstitching:
Simply Wren by Heritage Crafts
Stitched on 16ct Sand Dune over-dyed aida by sewitall
Stitch count 66 high by 67 wide
Started - 4th July 2020
Finished - 15th February 2021
Total stitching time - 16 hours 15 minutes
This one had the least amount of backstitching - just the eye, beak and a bit around the edges of the bird to create a ruffled-feather look.
I thought I knew how these were going to be FFOd but might have changed my mind. I want them done in time for March so can't procrastinate too long!
Talking of March, here's a gentle reminder that it's only a couple of weeks until the Mischievous March new start SAL.
If you don't know what this is, it's a fun opportunity to start and work on four new projects during the month - one each full weekend - then link up on this blog the following Monday. But if weekends aren't convenient then go with whatever suits you best; these SALs are always flexible.
If you are planning to join in, I hope you have all your supplies ready? Mine are all ready to go and I have to say I am really looking forward to starting four brand new projects, especially given I've finished four WIPs this year. Four out, four in... that nicely balances the scales!
