Stitching The Time Away.

Posted on | May 25, 2017 | 12 Comments

Not a lot of big projects on the go but I have been catching up on a few stitcheries.

These are part of a set of 12. I think I am up to the half way mark.

I suppose it is appropriate to have snowmen at the moment as we are only a few days away from the start of Winter.

These penguins are also part of a set of animal stitcheries from The Birdhouse.

After working on very fine embroideries it is a good change to have something simple to work on.

I always enjoy the flowers that choose to bloom in Winter, and the azaleas are putting on a great show. But I find it extra special when there are some pretty anomalies that come along as well.

This is a white azalea that has a very fine pink edge and a slight pink tinge.

But as you can see, every now and then we have a flower that is totally pink. This doesn’t happen every year, so it is a bonus when it does.

Have a lovely week and enjoy the coming weekend.

Cheers, Karen

    I love your penguins, Karen. The colour thread you’ve used is lovely.

  • Azaleas are favorites here, too, but ours bloom in the early Spring. We have one “sport” that has one little spot in the big plant with different color blooms.
    Love those stitcheries! So pretty.

    I always love seeing what you’re working on. It really is snow man weather. It’s freezing here this morning!! Azaleas are just so beautiful.

  • Azaleas bloom in early spring here. I’d love for them to bloom several times a year. Some of the older homes have rows of azaleas lining the drive or the house. Talk about color.
    Your stitcheries are just too cute. Penguins! So adorable.
