Anyway, this post is a Fourfer - four weeks of Frolics in one!
Twenty-third Frolic: June 16th
I remember that I had a really productive day for my Twenty-third Frolic, I actually had nothing on that day (amazing in itself), so I spent most of the day pottering around in my Girl's Nest and catching up on my Masterchef watching.
This is what I worked on:
I finished the stitching on "Accept this trifle from a friend" (which is a freebie from Plum Street Samplers) and then I searched through my fabric stash to find the perfect green fabric for the backing (it matches the bird exactly) - very happy to find it.
I also FFOed, Singin' in the Spring (CCN) - again with fabrics from my stash - this time I used bright 1930s fabrics.
I also did a bit on my Nutcracker Sampler
I also pulled out this Happy Halloween UFO but I put it away again as I couldn't find the relevant threads but maybe it will come out again soon for Friday Frolics.
(Psst! If you are wondering what the real reason is as to why I put it away again, it is the fact that the pumpkins are stitched using Smyrna Crosses and it was Soooo fiddly getting them right - and there are still two more to go - yikes!)
I also pulled out this UFO ... Snowmates by Blue Ribbon Designs from the JCS Christmas Ornie Magazine 2015.
.... and worked on it a little more.
So, a very successful Twenty-Third Friday Frolic.
For this Frolic, I picked up Afternoon in London by CCN, this is a gift for a friend's 60th and I really need to get a wriggle on as she is going to turn 61 at the end of July! (Only a little late with this one, but it did take us a while to find the right design for her tastes.)
I managed to get quite a bit done on that Friday and over the rest of the weekend, as you can see.
Loving stitching this one, gorgeous muted palette and the fabric I am stitching on is a dream to work with.
Twenty-fifth Frolic: June 30th
For this frolic, I thought that I should get a wriggle on with my Red Robin pouch.
So, I went from here....
... to this....
I am really happy with how the red Japanese beads make the design pop and give it that real Christmassy feel.
Twenty-sixth Frolic: July 7th
On July 7th, I picked up Afternoon in Paris by CCN again, as I do really need to get it finished very soon.
So, it went from this ....
.... to this...
Getting so close to a finish now!
So, that is four weeks of Frolicking for you, I am so looking forward to picking up another WIP this coming Friday - only two more sleeps!
