Twofer WIP/UFO Finishes

Hooray! I am so excited about this post. I managed to finish up two long standing projects in various stages of completion. I changed both of them for various reasons. I am so, so happy with these projects. This make 10 projects taken out of the Bin O'Shame so far. Woohoo! 

I forgot to take 'Before' pictures on these two projects, but oh well. not a big deal! At any rate, on with the show! :)

Finish #1:

Design: Checkered Love kit

Designer: M Designs 

Fabric Used: 28 count Graziano linen in natural and cream

Fibers Used: DMC in B5200, 221, 347, 3609 and 3726. Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Prickly Pear. Rainbow Gallery Nordic Gold ND3, Silver. 

Bling Used: Two By Jupiter! charms as included in the kit used. One unidentified heart charm used from stash. Bead Landing crowned key charm from Michael's

Stitcher's Notes: I hated the border on this piece, so I just left it off as I thought it made the piece look too busy. 

Original Piece:

My Version:

Finish #2:

Design: Tartan Thistles needlecase

Fabric Used: 14 count white aida as included in the kit

Fibers Used: unknown as included in the kit

Stitcher's Notes: The stitching that was done was not centered properly on right side of the fabric, so this one was framed. I will be converting the remaining floss to DMC and/or Anchor floss so that I may stitch this one again.

Well, I had best be off. I need to get the desk cleaned off and get the next project out. Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
