Quick Finish

Managed to get a quick finish under my belt before the end of the year. I have no idea if I will manage to get another one, but we shall see. I'm not *quite* ready to do an "End of the Year' post, however, I am pretty sure that next year will be another Bin O Shame year. I'm ready to get back to that, and I also have one or two new starts to do. :)

At any rate, here is what I managed to finish up around 12:30 AM last night. It was quick and fun, although, I wish I had had some Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Tulip, rather than the Cranberry that I used. (For those of you who don't know, Crescent Colours  will now be manufactured by Classic Colorworks, according to Sharon's post here). 

Design: Hot Cocoa (in the 2013 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue, page 39)

                        Designer:  Mary McLenon-Turley of M Designs

Fabric: 40 Count Newcastle linen in Doubloon by Picture This Plus

                 Fibers Used:  Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Cranberry,                                              Harvest, Icing and Malted Milk. 

Welp, I best be off. Tons to do today before work. Hope everyone has a great week! :)


Respectfully submitted,
