Election Day Stitching

Greetings, sports fans! I don't know about anyone else, but yesterday I had hit Acute Election Fatigue in the worst way. And since I knew that yesterday was the Super Bowl of Election events, this meant coverage was probably going to begin a midnight and not stop until, iuno....March of next year. So, I decided to pull out a lovely UFO that had been languishing in my stitchy bag. And lo, and behold, I managed to finish the stitching. Gasp! :O. Oh, the humanity! 

At any rate, here is the finished product after mini marathons of Sex and The City , Law and Order: SVU, and Create TV. The Hubmeister was glued to the computer watching events unfold live, but then again he's a political junkie like that. :)

Design: Tulip House Stitching Companion from the book A Stitcher's Journey

Fabric: 30 count Friendship Blend linen by R and R Reproductions

Fibers Used: The Gentle Art Sampler Threads in Apricot Blush, Chamomile, Endive, Lexington Green, Melon Patch, Pumpkin Patch, and Toasted Barley. 

This was one of those rare times that I actually stitched a project with the called for fabric and floss. This sat for a while because I wasn't sure if I was liking the colors, but for whatever reason, yesterday I just decided to finish it up and get on with it. I like how it turned out, although it's not in my favored bright jewel toned colors. 

Well, I must be off. Tons to do today. Hope everyone got out to vote! :)
