Finished For Now
Am I the only one that ever underestimates the amount of floss that is needed for a project? Please tell me that I am not. I got today's project out yesterday as it was Mardi Gras yesterday and I have never stitched anything Mardi Gras related in the 20 some odd years I have been stitching. I wanted to stitch this in silks, and found the perfect purple, however, that seems to be the color that I ran out of, darn it! So instead of Mardi Gras, I have Mar Gras today as I need to wait until I can get to the LNS (après payday, natch!) in order to procure the additional floss needed to actually finish this project. Ah, well, pictures anyway!
Design: Mardi Gras (exclusive Member Only chart)
Designer: Sandra Dering of SanMan Originals
Fabric: 28 count Zweigart Lugana evenweave in Rainbow Sparkle by Silkweaver in their Reflections line.

Stitcher's Notes: The three traditional colors of Mardi Gras (purple, green and gold), honors the Three Kings who visited the Christ child on Epiphany, the twelfth day after Christmas. The colors represent Justice (purple), Faith (green) and Power (gold).
Well, I best be off. Got tons to do today. Hope everyone is having a great week!
