Finished Number Four

This latest finish from the Bin O' Shame really was shameful. I had half a dozen stitches in it, decided I wasn't sure on the color (Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Cupid, for the curious), so I tossed it in the bin until I could make up my mind. 

Where it sat. And sat. And sat. 

Well, yesterday I came across it and was just utterly mortified that a project had been sitting as long as it did. I took out the stitches done in  Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Cupid and looked around for a floss that appealed to me. Found one and managed to knock this out in about a day and a half. Well, at least it is finally done and I can be happy about that. This finish is for Teh Hubmeister, in honor of our 6th wedding anniversary which we will be celebrating next month on the 14th. 

Here are the details:

Design: Love Letters (former freebie)

Designer: Terri Carl of The Chocolate Cat (retired designer)

Fabric: 36 count Edinburgh linen in Antique White

Well, I had best be off. I need to clean up my stitching area and then paw through the Bin O' Shame and find another one to bite the dust. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)

That is a gorgeous design and I love the colur you chose. Is the pattern available anymore?

@Kaisievic: Unfortunately not. She quit designing a number of years ago and It's not longer available.

Sorry about that! :/
