BFF Month 1.4 Stitching

Monday was a very productive day for me. In addition to finishing off the Lima Beans, I went on to put the last stitches in Month 1 of Best Friends Forever. There's nothing like an extra cup of coffee during the day!

Today I tried to get some photos in the morning sun before it went behind the trees:


The photo's still a little shady, but let's call it "atmospheric." Here's the whole month:


The next step is to cut them all out and start work on the setting, which will be English Paper Pieced. Right now, though, I've started to stitch Month 2. I've been thinking about the colours for a month now, so I'm keen to see how they will look, but I absolutely would not let myself start until Month 1 was done. Good plan, I think!

It's Wednesday, so I'm linking up again to WIP Wednesday at The Needle and Thread Network. Onwards!

  2. Your "Best Friends Forever" series reminds me of some of the embroidery I have inherited from my mother. Beautifully stitched and very heart warming. I'm really interested to see how you will put them together.

    1. Thank you very much! I am waffling a little bit today about what to do next. But I think it needs to be some cleaning and re-organizing, so I probably won't get back to this project until next week.

  4. I just love the tea/coffee pot one. They are looking great. I'm intrigued to see how it fits with paper piecing.

    1. Thanks very much, Jillian. I am keen to see how it will work out too! It's one thing to make a plan, but you never really know until you do it. ;)
