Time for another update on my stitching projects. This week I have two finishes to share from the “Vintage Eggs” cross-stitch pattern series by The Prairie Schooler. The end is in sight! I am almost finished with this series, and, even though I did not quite get them done in time for Easter, I am still very happy with my progress.
First, I finished the egg with the two sheep:
I love the sheep. This one was fun to stitch even though it got confusing towards the end because the sheep look the same upside down to right-side up, so I had to be careful about stitching the numbers in the right place.
Then, I realized I never shared this bunny with the basket on his back:
I love the baby chick peeking out of the top of the basket! So cute. I finished this one several weeks ago, but somehow it slipped through the cracks.
So, I only have one more egg to stitch. The one I have left is a rooster with three baby chicks. I have made a start on it:
I am actually a little farther along than this now, but I realized I forgot to take a photo of my most recent progress. Whoops! You can see what it will look like when it is finished on the right in the pattern photo.
So, here are six out of the seven I have completed now. The sheep egg is missing from this photo:
I’m not sure if I will have time to finish them into ornaments by next week. I may need to buy some more mat board for the backing. But, I hope to finish stitching the last egg before next week’s update.
Thanks for reading!
Love your PS eggs. I have a couple made myself. Happy belated Easter!
Thank you! Happy belated Easter to you, too!
They look so good all together :)
Thanks! The Prairie Schooler has such great designs. :)
oooh really lovely on black background
Thanks! It’s hard to stitch on–definitely need good lighting, but I like the effect, too. 😊
I love the colors in this one. They are striking against the black background.
Thank you! ☺
They are all so cute! Can’t wait to see them as ornaments. Do you have a little tree to hang them on?
Thanks! No, I don’t have a little ornament tree yet, but I hope to get one. I’d like to get to the point where I have seasonal ornaments to hang all year long, but I’m not quite there yet. :)
They are going to look awesome displayed on a tree! You will get there. Doesn’t seem like it took you too long to do all the eggs.
Thanks! I might do some fall-themed ornaments next. We’ll see…☺
