Smaller Finishes

Taking a break from the Purple Blob. So help me, it is driving me plum batty!!! I have made mistakes in it which has resulted in the ripping out of over four hours worth of work. I am not sure if I am going to finish this one in time, but yanevaknow. May it be from my lips to the Heaven's ears. :)

I decided instead to re-stitch one Shepherd's Bush design and stitch up a whole other of their mini kits. These were purchased at Stitcher's Paradise bit ago. They were fairly cheap (less than 15 dollars each) and included all of the silk, fabric, buttons and a needle for stitching. They went *VERY* quickly and I look forward to stitching even more of these. 

Here is the first one, redone on a different fabric with a miscellaneous golden bee charm attached. As I suspected, I thought it would look better on a crisp white linen, instead of the light flax I stitched the original one on. This one was stitched yesterday, Saturday, April 12, 2014:

Design: Be Happy Heart Kit

Designer:Shepherd's Bush

Fabric: 28 count Charles' Craft Carolina linen in Salt

Floss: Gloriana Threads in Dried Pink Roses #119), Thread Gatherer's Silk n' Colors in Medieval Mulberry #091, Rose Blush #100 and Williamsburg Green; Possible discontinued color. Unable to locate any info on it at all. 

Project #2 finished today:

Design: Taste of Summer kit

Designer: Shepherd's Bush

Fabric: 28 count Charles' Craft Carolina linen in Salt

Fibers: DMC in 610, 729, 936, 3012, and 3021. Weeks Dye Works  embroidery floss in Linen #1094, Red Pear #1332, Lancaster Red #1333, Guacamole in #1193 and Gunmetal in #1298. 

Well, I had best be off. Time for more Hercule Poirot  movies. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)
