Miss Phryne Fisher and Mr. Macintosh

I love Netflix. For not much money, you can binge watch all sorts of series. Since I had worked my way through the entire Poirot series and I've hit the halfway point through Murder, She Wrote, Netflix had suggested another series, this time Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries. It is produced in Australia and if I may say so, this is a cracking good series. The series is set in the 1920's Melbourne, Australia. the costumes and the writing is first rate. The only trouble is, I stopped the next UFO that I had gotten out in order to stitch on something in the style of Art Deco. I went looking into the Bin O'Shame and found this one that had already been started. The stitches had gotten squashed and it didn't look very pretty. So, I decided to get another piece of fabric out and I re-started the project. I started it late Friday night and managed to finish it up just a bit ago. 

Before Picture:

After Picture:

Design: Rennie Mackintosh style Rose kit

Designer: Quick and Easy Cross Stitch magazine (Issue 138) April 2006

Fabric: 28 count white Monaco

Fibers Used:  DMC Six Strand Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in 413, 552, 917, 991, 992, and 3608. 

Stitcher's Notes: Restarted and finished this long term UFO. Began Friday, March 6, 2015. Finished stitching Sunday, March 8, 2015.

This one has the added bonus of coming out of the Bin O'Shame, so I can add this to my list. Woohoo! DH informed me earlier that he also loves the Art deco/ Art Nouveau style. This makes me happy, as I was wanting to 'redo' the common areas of the house (kitchen, living room, etc) in that style, but I was worried that he would hate it. So, tonight was a double yay! :)

Well, at any rate, I need to get the desk cleaned up and get things sorted. Lots to do before work tomorrow. Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! :)
