WIP Weds: Vintage Eggs Finished

This week I finished stitching the last egg in the Vintage Eggs series by The Prairie Schooler. I still need to transform them into ornaments, but all eight eggs are now stitched. Here is the final completed egg:

Vintage Eggs Rooster Cross-Stitch Pattern

Now I have eight stitched eggs I need to finish as ornaments. I bought some backing fabric for them a few weeks ago at my local quilt shop. (Fat quarters are awesome for finishing small stitched items.) I’m not sure how much I will get done this weekend. It depends on how I feel about measuring and cutting all the mat board backing pieces. I would like to wash the stitched eggs, too, before I finish them. I usually give my pieces a good rinse with some Orvus quilt soap before I finish them or frame them.

I have a few projects in mind for my next stitching project. I could start some more smalls. I also have some older WIPs I could try to finish. And, I have a model I could stitch for an original pattern I’ve been working on. So, we’ll see. I might start some kind of rotation and pick a couple things to work on.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Lovely! Can’t wait to see them all finished as ornaments. You have lots of time until next Easter, so don’t wear yourself out too quickly, LOL. Can’t wait to see what your next project will be. Isn’t it fun to start a new project or pick up and old one and give it some love?

    Thanks! I have been feeling a little worn out. The thought of cutting out all those pieces of mat board for backing made me tired just thinking about it, so I am taking a bit of a break before I finish the egg ornaments. :) Still deciding what I want to stitch next, too. :)
