Takedown Twenty Finish!

I did it! I managed to power through and get this latest finish under my belt in record time. It took a day and a half to wrap things up and I am so pleased with the outcome. This also means that I am 5 more projects from the  Bin O'Shame  to make my goal of 25 for the year. WooHoo!

Well, here it is #20 from the  Bin O'Shame :

Design: Ice Cream Sundae (Country Cottage Chart No. Nineteen)

Designer: Nikki Lehman of Country Cottage Needleworks

Fabric: 28 count cream lugana 

Fibers: DMC Six Strand Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in the called for colors

Stitcher's Notes: Changed wording at the top to my husband's favorite ice cream shop. :)

Last Update As of Friday, April 17, 2017:

Finished On Tuesday, June 23, 2015:

This past weekend, I did the hermit thing and managed to get Ghoul updated a wee bit more. A friend of mine is lending a hand with plotting out the middle, so this is where I am stopping until she finishes off the wording for in the middle. 

Design: Ghoul (A 2008 design). Ravens taken from the September/October 2010 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue, page 29. Designed also by Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers. Leaves the ravens are sitting on were free formed by me. Pomegranates taken from Kreuzstitch and fillet pattern of Grisons  circa, 1927

Designer: Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers

Fabric: 32 count Belfast linen in Legacy  by Picture This Plus, from their Crystal line. 

Fibers Used:   Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in Noir, 3224, and 3842.

Stitcher's Notes: Project originally started Tuesday, September 2, 2015.  This was originally a Halloween/Fall type design. Turned into a memorial sampler for our only child. Crystal Legacy used to invoke the feeling of frost that has landed on parchment paper. Pomegranates stitched in place of the original acorns. In ancient Greece, pomegranates were considered the fruit of the dead and were said to have sprung from the blood of Adonis
