Love Happens Finish

Finally got around to my first finish of the year. Yay! My current WIP, Christmas In Paris, is on hold until I can get the rest of the floss in. Major bummer, but no floss, no stitch, yea? :)

So, while I am waiting for more floss to come in, I picked up a UFO out of the bin and managed to finish it up late last night or early this morning, depending on your viewpoint. :) It finished up rather quickly and I am really pleased with it. 

Design: Love Happens photobooth

Designer: Bent Creek

Fabric: 32 count raw linen as provided in the kit

Fibers Used: DMC Six Strand Embroidery Floss Art. 117

Accouterments: Mill Hill petite glass beads in 42014, Black

I just love these Photobooths by Bent Creek. I am going to have to stitch up more of these. 

A note about the box in the background. It was on sale at my LNS and I snagged for a really nice price. I have no idea why it called to me, but it did. And into the basket it jumped! I did some research and found out this was part of the Where In The World Is Mary Kirby series by Brightneedle. Naturally, I fell in love with the series, and naturally, it's long OOP and discontinued! At any rate, here's some pictures of the box itself:

Inside of the lid:

Bottom of the box:

If anyone has any of the Mary Kirby designs for sale for a reasonable price, please contact me. I would love to have more of these! :)

Well, I best be off for now. Got a jam packed day. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! :)


Respectfully submitted,
