Well, That Was Quick

I had hoped this particular new start would take longer than it did, but apparently not. Even with going out and wandering around this weekend, this went by a LOT faster than I had anticipated. I have a project kitted up for the upcoming overnight shifts DH and I are going to have to work, but that doesn't begin until the 23rd of this month, so I may have to start that project now if I do not wish to do any more Bin O'Shame cleanup. Well, I suppose that can be decided later. 

At any rate, here is the newest finish:




Designer: Blackbird Designs

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

Fibers Used:  Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Fern Frond, Malted Milk, Noir, Rosebud, Rose of Sharon, Tree Trunk and Vanilla Pudding.  Gloriana Threads 12 strand French silk floss in #016 Holiday Green. 



Stitcher's Notes: Taken from the leaflet Christmas Garden. This leaflet is now OOP and very hard to find. Unfortunately, this leaflet is not for sale or trade. Began Wednesday, October 7, 2015.

As of Friday, October 9, 2015:




Finished as of Sunday, October 11, 2015:




I had best be off. It's time for breakfast and I need to do the cleanup after the fact. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
