WIPW - A Birthday Present

Oh, how time flies! Here is this week's Work In Progress Wednesday report.


I completed the four lines of small blue and green leaves.

Sunday Stitch School Stitch Sampler 

I used two filling stitches: #87 Open Wave (variegated thread) and #104 Fly Stitch Filling (red and white).

Both were stitched freehand without waste canvas, so they are a bit wonky.

Birthday Present

A young lady I know will soon be 8 years old. The other day she coloured in a Mandala and hinted that she wished it had been stitched. I rescheduled some chores to get enough time to stitch it for her. This is as far as I have got.

I will only use threads that I have in my stash, so that is why the orange is a bit too strong in colour. Furthermore, I will also add some beads and metallic thread as the birthday girl LOVES everything that sparkles.


  1. Your mandala and sampler are coming along nicely, but the birthday present is fabulous!

  2. What a lovely gift the mandala will be for the young lady!

  3. What a very demanding young lady! But it is always good to encourage people to know their own minds..

  4. What a lovely gift! She is a very lucky girl!

  5. Mandala has evolved further.
    Your cute friend will be surprised and have a Wonderful smile after receiving this gift.
    She is very good at coloring.
