French Country Fruit WIP finish

Howdy, sports fans! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I managed to finally get another finish under my belt, in between working on WIPs and UFOs. I don't really have progress pictures, because not enough has been accomplished on anything. I've been in a mood where I stitch one thing for a bit, then put it down and get something else. I suppose in the long run this will help, but right now it feels like I'm not accomplishing anything.

At any rate, here is my latest finish. I started this right after I finished the French Country Cherries but abandoned it for whatever reason. I couldn't sleep last night, so I got this out and had all of it finished except the inside of the leaves before I went to bed. I would have finished it, but I was really tired, and rather than risk the dreaded Frog showing up, I retired and finished it this morning. Discretion and valor and all that sort of thing.

Design: French Country Grapes

Designer: JBW Designs

Fabric: 28 count Graziano Milan linen in white from Norden Crafts

Fibers: Crescent Colours cotton floss in Four Leaf Clover, Frozen Margarita, German Chocolate, Lavender Louise, and Pansy Purple

I got out another long time WIP to work on and I've just about completed it. I need to go do dinner chores and what all, so I may not finish it tonight. Tomorrow for sure.

Time to bolt. Hope every one is having a fantastic weekend. Let's go Devils, let's go! :D


Respectfully submitted,
