Last week I was very much looking forward to the weekend so I could work on the Burda Cover Dress. Unfortunately, I fell prey to a nasty stomach bug on Friday afternoon and I was pretty much wiped out for the whole weekend. I felt too bad to even think about sewing.
Luckily, by Sunday afternoon I was finally starting to feel almost normal again. It was too late to drag out a full blown sewing project, so I pulled out this little UFO instead. Remember Cider House Garden?
I already had quite a bit done, but yesterday I finished backstitching the apple baskets and the quilts. I also finished the fence at the bottom and started on the greenery below it. I added the trees on either side of the house, filled in the barrels in front of the house and added a round of green cross stitches to the roof.
Here's a close-up of the greenery below the fence. I just need to add the pumpkins and it will be done!
I also pulled this sweet little piece out. I think I've shared this before. It's a Christmas design by Just Nan. I need to finish this up as an ornament and hang it on the tree. As you can see from the date stitched on it, it's only been waiting for 9 years to be completed!
