Patience is a virtue...

A late post this week...

I was stitching on 'Noelle' by Mystic Stitch last week, but I just didn't have the patience for all the confetti stitches...

Not much progress there, then!  Due to my inability to concentrate on this, I ended up stitching on two other designs that are not on my UFO list as they are quite new.  'Faith' by My Big Toe designs is a lovely stitch, using Northern Lights silk:


I would have finished this, but I ran out of thread, so I'm waiting for a new one from the ONS.

The other design I have started stitching is ByGone Stitches' 'One Nation'.  I love this design, even though I'm not American, and it's a BAP!  I'm stitching it on a metre length of 28ct fabric, using Crescent Colours threads...



I'm back on 'Chorus Line' this week, so I'll hopefully finish it... I'll update at the weekend.

Happy Stitching!

You're working on some gorgeous designs right now! I've never seen One Nation before, it's a beautiful piece :)

Beautiful WIPs, Lynn. I started on Faith awhile ago too, but couldn't get into it. I suspect it might be the colors I chose. I'll have to get back to it one of these days.... maybe change out the coloring. Yours look beautiful. :D

You've been busy! I like the One Nation, I think my DH would like to have that one - might have to do some shopping. ; )

Ooh I love Faith, such an important word to me.
