A finish and making the best of a situation


Got out another project from the Monster WIP Bag and managed to get another one finished just a bit ago. Somewhere along the way, I mis-stitched one lousy stitch on the flames/grass under the cauldron and as consequence, I had to fudge the third row a bit. Very much like my beloved New Jersey Devils tonight, I made the best of it and took comfort in knowing that I did my best in a not so ideal situation. I am no fair weather fan, and I will be a Devil until I die, but sometimes you just have to look for the good in disappointment and vow to do better next time. Since this project was from LAST Halloween, I am going to count this towards the WIPocalypse finishes(or at least my version of it!).



At any rate, here is the fruits of my labors:




Design: Witchy Kitty as featured in the September/October 2011 issue of Just Cross Stitch

Designer: Brittercup Designs

Fabric: 32 count Cashel linen in Periwinkle Prism

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours in Black Coffee, Lemon Lime, Pansy Purple and Tomatillo. Weeks' Dye Works in Marigold and Pumpkin. The Gentle Art in Banker's Grey. Mill Hill beads in #02016 Crystal Mint.







I've gotten another WIP/UFO out of the bag and I'm off to put a few stitches in that before bed. My thanks again to my beloved New Jersey Devils. You guys put up one hell of a fight! Let's go Devils, let's go!
