Veteran's Day Finishes

Been busy today finishing up long overdue projects. Two more have been taken out of my huge stitching bag and I am really happy about that. I promised myself that I could start a new project if I finished these two up, however, I think there is another project I want to stitch on in the same bag, so I may finish that one up instead. 

At any rate, here are the two I finished stitching on just a bit ago. The floss finally came in for the A La Belle Etoile SAL piece and it took less than 10 minutes to finish up the leaves on the right hand side. I love the way it turned out.   


Design: A La Belle Etoile SAL

Designer: The Thread Basket with C Mon Mode

Fabric: 28 count silk and linen in natural by Wichelt

Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Elegant Eggplant, Ivy League, Sweet Lavender, and Tumbleweed. Gumnut Yarns Stars silk floss in #991 ecru. Kreinik Very Fine (#4) Braid in 001 Silver.

Accouterments: Jolee's Jewels - Crystallized Swarovski Elements in Purple Violet 4 mm biconeCrystal Moonlight 4 mm bicone20 MM Crystal Aurora Borealis star and 16 mm - Crystal Aurora Borealis moon.


Design: Christmas Tea

Designer: Paulette Stewart for Plum Street Samplers

Fabric: 32 count Belfast linen in pearl grey

Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Collard Greens, Cranberry, Noir and Vanilla Pudding

The chart was a gift from my dear friend Barb and I enjoyed every stitch of this project. It was stitched with one strand of Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk over two fabric threads. 

Well, I best be off. Laundry is calling and I need to clean up my stitching area so I can get out another project. Hope everyone is having a great weekend and a special thank you to all of the Veterans out there today. You are not forgotten! 

Respectfully submitted,
