NJ Devils Playoffs Finish

Hooray! My beloved my beloved New Jersey Devils have made the playoffs again this year. Since the division's creation in 1993, the Devils have won the Atlantic Division season title nine times, most recently in the 2009–10 season. The first game of the playoffs is this Friday against the Florida Panthers. I'm wishing and praying for another Stanley Cup . If the Devils win the Stanley Cup this year, that will make the fourth time in the club's history, and the fourth Cup for Martin Brodeur , the best goaltender in the history of the game. Let's go Devils , let's go! :D

To celebrate the Devils getting into the playoffs, I stitched up this little wee cutie from Nomis. It was completed in about 4 days and DH has already requested one for his Toronto Maple Leafs who unfortunately didn't make it into the playoffs this year :(.

At any rate, here's my finish:

Design: NJ Devils logo

Designer: Nomis for the NHL (an OOP book)

Fabric: 28 count white Monaco

Fibers: DMC Cotton Embroidery Floss (Article 117) in B5200, 310 and 321.

The great big honking pink bunny Peep you see in the background is actually a treat that the Easter Bunny left me for Easter. It's a coin bank. I am a Peep fanatic and I just adore it. I's love to have one in the chick form in yellow. Maybe next year! :)

Well, I'm off like a dirty shirt. Got tons to do before tomorrow. Hope everyone's having a great week! :)


Respectfully submitted,

Dear Nikki,

The pattern came from Nomis NHL CROSS STITCH MINIS Hockey Logos. Unfortunately, I am not selling my copy at this time. There is one for sale at http://crossstitchstash.com/Nomis-NHL-CROSS-STITCH-MINIS-Hockey-Logos-P1931460.aspx. Or you might try eBay. It occasionally shows up there. HTH! :)
