Another almost finish

This is another UFO that was part of the grab bag from the other day. It's almost finished, however, I have to wait for more floss to come in. I decided to stitch it with 2 strands of silk floss on 14 count aida, which resulted in having to order floss. These things happen and I don't regret stitching it on 14 count. I also ran out of the Teddy Bear and had to substitute Cinnamon Stick, since the Teddy Bear that I had was so far off it would NOT have matched at all. I think I did a fair job of blending the two in to where you can't tell where one left off and the other began. :)

The first in this series, Cappuccino, was stitched on a 14 count tan marble starlight aida from Sassy's Fabby's .  I have the last one in the series, Caffe Latte and I am thinking about stitching it on a 14 count Chocolate Raspberry to complete the coffee series on 14 count aida cloth. 

At any rate, here is my almost finish:

Design: Frappuccino

Designer: Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks

Fabric: 14 count aida in Beige

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Beanstalk, Carnation, Cinnamon Stick, Old Crow, Strawberry Shortcake, Teddy Bear, and Vanilla Pudding

I did manage to remove all of my pictures from Webshots, although it was a long a tedious process. They didn't make it easy on a person, but get them I did. I am toying with the idea of going through and uploading them directly to Blogger. It will take a looooooooooooong time, so that may be a long term project, rather than one that's finished in a day. :)

Well, at any rate, I have to bolt for the door. I need to get my materials out for Simone de Jong's 1905 Sampler SAL.  It's raining to beat the band here and it's the perfect weather to stay indoors and stitch. :) Hope everyone has a great week! :)


Respectfully submitted,
