First finish of the new year

Happy new year, all! I hope everyone is recovering nicely from the holidays, lol! :)


Last night I managed to get the last stitches in my My Home project. Had to frog the over one on my initials, because I didn't like the placement, but I'm glad I did it. I purchased a nifty little tool, The Grasshopper Scissors the last time I was in Stitcher's Paradise. I am soooooooooooo glad I spent the money, as frogging over one truly sucks and this made it so, so easy to frog out the stitches.


At any rate, here is my first finish of 2011. May there be many more this year! :D




Design: My Home design from the Loose Feathers Leaflet #38


Designer: Blackbird Designs


Fabric: 28 count linen in French Lace (DMC equivalent to 3024~ paler) by Wichelt


Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silks in Cranberry, Elegant Eggplant, Ivy League, Shale, Sweet Lavender, and Vanilla Pudding.


Specialty stitches: Algerian Eyelet, Over One, and Satin Stitch


Notes: Alphabet taken from the Blackbird Designs book Honeysuckle Manor . There was no rhyme or reason on the placement of the letters and numbers. It was done merely on whim. :)








Well, I need to bolt for the door. I am working early this morning, but that also means I get to leave earlier than normal! :D


Hope everyone is having a fantastic new year!
