STITCHING PROGRESS

Dare to dream for dreamers see tomorrow,
 dare to make a wish,
for wishing makes way for hope.

I really did hermit for the weekend, lots of progress. here is where I finished Strawberries so faire a month ago, sadly I had to frog the section across the bottom before I could start for the weekend.
 
 At the end of the weekend, I had completed all the stitching ready for construction and also had finished the last of my four Latvian coasters this needed the foursided stitch and the Danish picot edge.
 
 
 
The Latvian coaster are my entry for the "COLOURS OF THE SEASON" The Regional Embroidery guilds Exhibition that opens at the end of this week. I stitch four coasters one for each season , these were designed by my friend Ann Brocas and I just loved stitching them. Here is the full set with the colours I selected for them.
 
 
Spring- think of Daffodils-DMC 3852 3821 522 520
 
 
Summer- old roses-DMC 3835 3836 3011 3013
 
 
Autumn- Marigolds - DMC 3853 3854 838 3828
 

 
 
Winter cool crisp days.-DMC 931 932 645 647
 
Which one do you like best ? I will share my other entry in a later posting.
 Did other Hermits get plenty of stitching done during the weekend am off to check.
