Another finish! Woohoo!

Woohoo! Managed to get a finish in before the end of the month. I am so excited, LOL! I had a LOT of fun stitching this up and look forward to stitching it again. I think the next time I am going to replicate it, I am going to change the flowers to a blue, perhaps Crescent Colours Blueberry Tart or one of my favorite blues, Grannie Annie. I may also stitch it in a darker red, such as Cupid. I haven't decided as of yet. For right now, however, it's going back into my stash pile until I decide to work on it again. :)


At any rate, here is my finish. I left off the black border going all the way around it because I think it looks better that way.



Design: The Busy Needle, created exclusively for The Busy Needle in Tuscon, AZ. (Sadly, this is now out of print and the shop has now closed due to the owner's illness as I have been told.)


Designer: Diane Williams for Little House Needleworks


Fabric: 28 count raw natural Cashel linen by Zweigart


Fibers: Crescent Colours cotton floss in Bamboo, Blackbird, Sassy Brass, Weeping Willow, and Wild Berries.








 Well, I best be off. I need to clean up my stitchy stuff here and get out another project to work on. This time, I think it will be a UFO. I so sorely lagging behind in the WIPocalypse goals that I had set for myself. Ah, well. Such is life, no?

Hope everyone is having a great week! :)

Beautiful stitching! This is such a lovely design. Shame it's OOP. Any ideas how you'll be finishing it?

Hugs,
Veronica.
