summer stitching .....

I've been working on these over the summer and am still pondering how to finish them.  Although the tentative plan for the lavender honey piece is to use it for a card.

The stitchery was from 'Down Grapevine Lane', the honey lavender is a Madame la Fée design, and the blackwork was a SAL via Claire93.  This was the first blackwork and SAL that I've ever done  - I enjoyed it and  learned lots, mostly from my errors.

Beautiful stitching, especially like those bees around the honey.

We're finally getting our summer, it's been hot, hot, hot this week and set to continue for a few more days. Hope you manage to get lots more stitching done during the summer months.

Your stitching is delightful. Summer has arrived in the U.K. and we have had sun and warmth for a number of days now and believe it is to carry on for a bit longer. Wonder how long it will be before folk start complaining that 'its too hot'
