FlashinScissors' Friday Frolics (2)


Barbara of The Flashing Scissors reporting in, a little late, but nevertheless here is my stitching from Friday night!

Thank you to all the lovely people who made me feel so welcome here last week. I think I've visited everyone, but, if not, I look forward to typing to each of you this week!

This is where I left Tatty Teddy (TT) last week:

Progress - Week 1
 There wasn't much stitching last week! 
If you visited last time you might remember that I had to wash and carefully iron him before starting on the job I hate - back stitching! Last week's stitching started just above the top blue flower, ending around his right ear (as we look at him).

I am pleased with the progress I made this week, stitching from ear to ear, but back stitch it is such time consuming, fiddly stitching.....

Progress - Week 2
And this is my latest progress on TT .
and, as I was aiming to start a new project on a train journey on Saturday, I also prepped this kit's fabric ready for stitching on said journey, by washing, ironing and putting some threads in place to mark the centre - maybe not the best place for them!

New project - Week 2
 My new project!
The only slight drawback is I'm trying to stitch this from the photo.  Dear Sister passed me a batch of cross stitch kits and a pile of magazines, but the magazine for this one wasn't there! The photograph is a bit small and doesn't show the tints of colours very well, but I hope I can do it justice!

Stitching - Week 2
Saturday's stitching!
Well, that was all I had time for on Friday night, and now I'm off to catch up on reading some of your blogs. 

I look forward to joining you here, at Friday Frolics, again next week.

Thank you for visiting, and have a great week everyone!

This tulips are a wonderful project. And the backstitching on sweet teddy is coming along fine.

Tatty Teddy is so cute and I love your new project, too - great contrast in designs, which is always good, I think.

The bear is looking cuter and cuter :)

Oh, are brave to start a pattern without a pattern. But I think you'll do it justice. It looks lovely :)
