My Home threadkeep

Been working too much here lately to get any real stitching done, however, today is my Friday, which means it's my weekend and Wednesday will be the weekly trek to Stitcher's Paradise for the Wednesday stitch-in. I so look forward to this time, as it's really the only time I can relax and enjoy the company of other stitchers. :)

At any rate, late last night I managed to get the My Home project finished into something other than a frame. I love the way this turned out and I have another BBD alphabet I am doing to make another one. I have my SMO workbox that I made, and I'm thinking I need a BBD one as well. Did I just feel my New Year's resolutions go out the door? LOL!

At any rate, here's the finished product:

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. :)

Wooden Base: HL #557868 by Plaid Enterprises for Hobby Lobby

Paint: Anita's metallic craft paint in 11202 Amethyst

Binder Rings: 1.5 inch album rings by The Paper Studio

Well, I best be off. Got some stuff to do before work and I can start my weekend! :)

Hope everyone has a wonderful day! :D
