Last night I finished Achoo! I am so happy he is all done, I wanted to post about it last night but it was getting late and I really needed to get to bed.
He is so cute, and I would love to keep him but he is for Mum and Dad and I can't wait to give him to them, I am excited about it. All I need to do now is date it and I want to write a little message in the corner.
Here he is here in all his glory.
I started achoo on the 10th of November 2010 and finished him on the 13th of April 2011. I think 5 months is pretty good, well good for me anyway. I am not the fastest stitcher there is out there. I found achoo a very easy stitch and I enjoyed it. Once all the cross stitches were done, the half stitch stitched up quickly and the backstitch took no time at all, so if anyone was wanting to stitch achoo at all one day, I recommend it.
He is stitched on 29 count jubilee evenweave and the brand is dimensions with their own dyed thread.
Here is a close up of achoo.
Isn't he cute? :-)
I think the backstitch really brought achoo to life so I've taken a photo of the backstitch to show you, even though you probably won't get a great view of it.
Now that he is done, I want to finish the details on Tabitha's birth sampler so I can then get the birth sampler and achoo washed, ironed and taken to the framers. I then want to start on my nephews birth sampler which I am going to have to order in the next few days.
Thank you for all your comments on my last post, you helped motivate me to finish achoo, and I am glad you all loved the photo of Tabitha. She is a cheeky girl, and that is one of my favourite photos of her.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and get some stitching done. I am off to a day spa on Saturday as Adrian bought me a day spa voucher for our first wedding anniversary back in March and I am going out for a few hours by myself to spoil myself, I am so excited!! :-) It's nice that he will be spending time with Tabitha on his own too.
happy stitching everyone. xx
