Another UFO Finish and 300th post

Hot off the Q-Snaps is a project that I started some time last year and never got around to finishing. I wasn't sure I was jazzed about the colors, however, for whatever reason I took it out of the UFO bin and it only took 2.5 days to finish the stitching on it. I think I like the way it turned out. Using the colors of floss and fabric that I did gives it a bit of a 'playing card' feel to it, which is kinda neat. 

At any rate, here is the finished stitching along with the accompanying stitchy notes:

Design: Needlebook from the Loose Feathers Leaflet #35 Peacock Pinkeep

Designer: Barb Adams of Blackbird Designs

Fabric Used: 28 count Jobelan in Queen Anne's Lace

Fibers Used: Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Cupid, Old Crow and Slate

I am thinking about holding a small contest in honor of my 300th post, so I will keep you guys updated. If I am not able to post near Thanksgiving, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! :)

I'm off to dig out another project while I'm on a roll. :)


Respectfully submitted,
