2 finishes to report

Hot on the heels of the last blog post, I've actually managed to finish two projects and am incredibly close to a third

First up is the Dragon Dream 12 Days of Christmas.  All DMC with a little sparkle from Petite Treasure and Kreinik Braids on grey evenweave.  This is a free chart on Dragon Dreams Facebook page and has more than a little humour involved.  I gave it the simplest box frame to finish it off

Second finish is Just Nan's Great Expectations.  I bought this chart on one of my many visits down to Exeter Prison 6 years ago. I started it at least 2 years ago and it got sidelined. It only took a couple of evenings to finish, beads and all. It has a beautiful enameled nest for a charm which is the reason I bought the chart.  Just simple DMC with the petite beads in the charm pack on natural linen.

So as an encore, I picked up Japanese Garden which is incredibly close to being finished.  I'm going to be rotten and not show a photo because it really *is* that close.


  1. OOOOOOH! Nice finishes !!!!!!! Can't wait to see Japanese Garden!

  2. I knew those dragons would be done in no time. You stitch so fast!! Looks great!
