WIP Wednesday Post For August 5, 2015

Another one from the Bin O'Shame. This is another almost 10 year project. It's a nice easy stitch, so I am not sure why I lollygagged on this one. I think it may have been the fact that the directions actually call for 3 strands of floss, making it a bit uncomfortable and quite frankly, bulky in the stitching. I only realized this when I was stitching on this yesterday and discovered that I had been stitching the border with 2 strands. As my friend Barb says, 'Whoopsies!'. As the stitches already look crushed, I suppose at this point it no longer matters. It *is* supposed to be a bookmark after all. I think perhaps I will stitch this again, only stitching it 2 over 2. Or, better, yet, once over two on 36 count smokey white Edinburgh linen by Zweigart. Oooooooooo! Heck yea!

It seems I am getting ahead of myself. I need to finish this one up first, lol! Here is my progress so far:

Design: Mackintosh Rose bookmark (kit)

Designer: Textile Heritage 

Fabric: 14 count cream aida banding of unknown manufacturer

Floss: unknown as provided in the kit

Stitcher's Notes: Kit purchased during the 2006 Scottish FestivalPlease note that at this time, this chart is not for sale or trade. Originally began project Thursday, August 17, 2006

Picked back up on Tuesday, August 4, 2015:

As of Wednesday, August 5, 2015:

Well, I had best be off. It' time for breakfast and I have no clue what I will have today. Happy Hump Day, all! :)
