A finish ,a frame and a fairy.

I was lucky ,and had enough threads to finish off the wren. It was odd though , with some colours there was a whole length of thread left , or more and with others there was just a few straggly little bits.
 Anyway, I was so busy enjoying the stitching , I didn't even take progress pics , lol . You just get to see the finished item .

  I was very lucky to find a couple of nice square frames in charity shops. Do you know how hard it is to find square frames? I would have liked to have it framed properly , but time and funds did not allow so I did it myself ,and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
   "Wren" by Twilleys of Stamford . Started 05/06/12 .  Completed 15/06/12 . Framed 23/06/12.

 MIL seemed to like it , so I hope to see it hanging on the wall soon. I really enjoyed stitching it ,and it got my mojo flying .
 The wren was finished on Wednesday  ,and on Thursday I started this fairy for LQUK .
 This is what it looked like yesterday morning .

  And here it is , done , last night. The back stitch went a lot quicker than I expected , so it was a lovely finish. It's a good job I liked it though, as My daughter has chosen a few charts for me to stitch , lol.
 Now , it's back to LK ABC lessons and time to choose a smaller project to go along with it .
 Thanks for dropping by ,

The wren looks lovely. I'm sure your mil was thrilled with it. Your fairy is beautiful I'm not surprised your daughter has a few more for you to do.
