Overnight Shift Finish

About once a month, I am scheduled to work the overnight shift of Friday and Saturday nights. Basically, whoever is on duty is just minding the store and making sure things don'e burst into flames. :)

As consequence, as my sleep schedule gets thrown off, I can't stitch on anything overly complicated. I chose this latest finish for its' simplicity and it's coloring. I love the way it turned out. Me being me, there were color changes involved!

At any rate, here is the latest non Bin O'Shame finish. I need to get the rest of the year kitted up, so that I may have these on reserve for when I do the overnight bunks.

Design: hd-41 June: a year in chalk

Designer: Cathy Habermann of Hands on Designs

Fabric Used: 30 count 18th Century Blackbird by R &R Reproductions (possibly discontinued)

Fibers Used: The Gentle Art Sampler Threads in Chalk and Tutti Frutti 

Stitcher's Notes: Substituted Tutti Frutti for the called for Wood Rose. Substituted the called for 30 count Weeks Dye Works Gunmetal for the 18th Century Blackbird in stash. 

Well, I had best be off. Time to make Sunday dinner. This week is lemon and herb chicken with broccoli. Hope everyone has a great week! :)


Respectfully submitted,
