WIP Wednesday Post For September 2, 2015

Another oldie, but a goodie from the Bin O'Shame pile. I have convinced myself that I may as well try and make it to 35 before the end of the year. This one is a bit tough to get through, as I am itching to stitch some fall/Halloween related things, due to the calendar changing over yesterday. However, as I do not wish for this project to get tossed aside again to sit for over 10 years, I will persevere until it is completed. :)

Well, at any rate, here she is. #34 from the Bin O'Shame:




Design: Strength (Block #5 from the 2002 Dragon Virtues Series)

Designer: Jennifer Aikman-Smith of Dragon Dreams

Fabric Used: 14 count Ivory aida

Fibers Used: DMC 208, 209, 210, 211, 550, 740, 742, 743, 744.  Kreinik metallic thread #4 VFB in #023 Lilac. Rainbow Gallery Tiara twisted French metallic in #T116 Purple

Stitcher's Notes: No notes regarding the start date of this project. Converted to purples from original greens. Resumed stitching on Monday, August 31, 2015.


As of Monday, August 31, 2015:



As of Wednesday, September 2, 2015:



I would also like to take this opportunity to wish the happiest of birthdays to Keanu Reeves, who is one of my favorite actors, ever. Happy 51st, Mr. Reeves!




Well, I had best be off. The Bin O'Shame won't stitch itself, haha! Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! :)
