A Finish For Ozzy

I managed to get a finish for Finish Friday, however it was quite late and had to wait until this morning in order to get a good picture of the finished product. I am happy that I finished stitching this one as I really did not want it to sit for so long it wound up in the Bin O'Shame. I was, however, resigned to that actually happening. I wasn't feeling up to stitching any more on Maleficent so I picked this one up and hammered it out until it was finished. I wound up meeting the 400 stitch goal on that one anyway, so no bigs. I was a lot further along on this one than the last posting, however, my Oz Man was terribly sick at the time, so I did not post any updates on this one. 

With this finish, this marks 21 non Bin O'Shame finishes for the year 2015. This is almost double my unofficial standing yearly goal of 12 finishes per year, or one per month. 

Design: Blessed Be (PPN183)

Fabric Used:  32 count Country Mocha Belfast linen by Zwiegart

Fibers Used:  Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in Noir, 1844 and 4126. Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Carrot Cake and Mango.

Accouterments: Mill Hill beads in #00167 Christmas Green.  Mill Hill #12184 Small Crescent Moon in Matte Crystal. 


Stitcher's Notes: Began Sunday, September 6, 2015. This project is a brand new start that is neither from the Bin O'Shame nor is it from Kit Mountain. Cat stitched from Plum Pudding Needleart freebie entitled 'Lookin' Like Fall'. Finished Friday, November 6, 2015.

As of Monday, September 6, 2015:

As of Friday, November 6, 2015:

I miss him now more than ever, as it's gotten a wee bit cold here and I miss his cuddling terribly. While I love our other fur babies, they are not prolific cuddlers as Ozzy was. 

Well, I had best be off. I need to clean up my stitching area and go make breakfast. Homemade biscuits and gravy. Woohoo! I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! :)
