Throwback Thursday Project

Grabbed another project out of the  Bin O'Shame and found it amusing that this project on Saturday, January 1, 2004. Throwback Thursday indeed! It should take less than a week to finish up, however, I had to order tow skeins of floss. It never pays to rob Peter to pay Paul. As this was kitted up and started over 11 years ago, the dye lots will not match. I will probably leave it as is, though. 

Well, at any rate, here is my Throwback Thursday UFO, which is now a WIP: 

Designer: Michelle Lash of Brittercup Designs

Floss Used: Weeks Dye Works  embroidery floss in Honeysuckle #1108, Blue Spruce #1276, Morris Blue #2109, Scuppernong #2196, Grapefruit #2245, Hibiscus #2278, and Iris #2316. 

As of Thursday, April 2, 2015:

I have since removed the backstitching, as I plan on redoing that portion of the design. I am also toying with the idea of re-stitching one of the flowers, as it is painfully obvious that I was new to using overdyed floss and it's not really pretty stitching. Then again, I may leave it as a reminder of how far I have come :).

Well, I had best be off. I need to do some chores. Hope everyone has a fantastic Easter weekend!:)
