The Final IHSW of 2011

This past weekend was the final IHSW of 2011 -- my pics are a little late, I'm sorry. I was working and travelling a lot so that I could have some down time at my parents' place for Christmas.

And so, during my belated IHSW weekend (I didn't manage to stitch at all until Monday and Tuesday) I completed parts 5 & 6 of my Tree of Stitches (by Abi Gurden). Part 5 was the Rice Stitch, which I neither loved nor hated. Part 6 was the cushion stitch, which I loved! Easy, fun, and SO PRETTY. I thoroughly enjoyed stitching the past few days - a nice change from the confetti frustration of Drama Queen that I normally deal with.

The tree (parts 1-5 - sorry it's a tad blurry):

Close-up of the stitches:


  1. Your tree is looking beautiful. You chose really pretty thread colors and the perfect fabric to stitch on.


  2. Pretty! And I love the colors you chose :)

  3. Those stitches look awesome. Great job!

  4. very beautiful! like the fabric you use!

  5. This is absolutely exquisite! I've never seen this design before, and your close up photo shows so much beautiful detail! Thanks for posting the designer's name. This will have to go on my wish list. I'll be watching your blog to see how this comes along!
