Sew Advent Showcase

Sew Advent SAL was a great success and I have been receiving finish pictures:

This one is stitched by Brenda of Time 2 Xstitch on 40ct raw linen using the recommended Needlepoint Inc silk threads. 

This was stitched by Caroline (no blog) from my Stitch-n-Bitch group on 30ct natural linen banding with Splendor S820, Silk-n-Colors Forest and white Krenik silk threads which she finished as a bell pull.

Claudia decided to stitch monochrome with a Hand Dyed Fibers red silk thread on a golden linen.

Melissa used Icicle, Collards/Baker Apple on 28ct Silkweave Quaker cloth.

Michelle of Stitchcraft Place used unknown hand dyed threads on 32ct raw linen. 

Penelope stitched on raw linen with white, red and green threads and finished as a hemstitched bell pull. 

Robin used NPI white, HDF in Rubbed Dark Red and Rubbed Evergreen silk threads on 32 count sage jobelan.

Last but certainly not least - Rowyn of Stitching Under the Southern Cross used DMC threads on 35ct linen hand dyed with tea and coffee. 

I am glad this is not a competition as there is no way that I could chose from these beautiful versions of Sew Advent! Each stitcher has made this sampler their own by adding their initials, a name, choosing their own linen and threads and a slight alteration here and there - I love them all. Thank you ladies for allowing me to showcase your stitching and if there are any other finished Sew Advents out there, I would love to showcase them too. Please email me a picture, together with a blog link if you have one and details of fabrics and threads used. My email address can be found on my profile.

I have been asked if I have anything planned for next year. I certainly have something in mind ;-) so keep visiting. 

For those of you who didn't sign up for the SAL, Sew Advent is now available *here* or by clicking on the CHARTS button on the sidebar. 

Thanks for visiting
Take care
