Another Bin O'Shame Finish

Ever have projects that you have had set aside for so long, you can't remember why you set them aside? And when you fish them out of your bins, and pick it back up, only to remember why you set it aside? This was the case for this latest Bin O'Shame finish. I decided to plow through anyway and get it done. I knuckled down the past 2 days and finished it up moments ago. While, it's very cute, I am not sure if I would stitch it ever again. The backstitching on it drove me plumb crazy!

At any rate, here's the wee finish:

Design: Teacup Kitty Cat

Fabric: 28 count white Monaco

Fibers Used: As provided in the kit

Bling Used: Mill Hill beads in 342014 Petite Black

Errata: Free card kit from Issue 82. Beads used in place of French knots. 

Before Backstitching:

After Backstitching:

Well, I best be off. I have to clean up my stitching area and get out something else from the Bin O'Shame. Happy Valentine's Day to you all! :)


Respectfully submitted,

Very sweet. I must admit that is one of the reasons I am not overly fond of Margaret Sherry designs - they are too fiddly for the result.
