Not Quite The Finish I Was Looking For...

...however, one takes one's finished where one can. I had wanted to have the motif I am stitching from Quaker's Dozen by Julia Line of Long Dog Samplers at least finished by now, however, due to the weather, I have had some bad headaches. This means no stitching on 48 count Napery Ivory Dower linen or Lady of The Flag on 28 count Cashel linen from Picture This Plus in Phantom. More is the pity, I suppose. 

I did manage to get this guy from Kit Mountain finished up in no time at all. I just love this chart. As I adore Peeps from the Just Born candy company. I am, however, a traditionalist, in that I want the chicks in the color yellow, and the bunnies in pink. When I was growing up, those were your choices. Other than take it or leave it :). DH cannot fathom my fascination and/or love of these treats, but then again, I am hard put to explain it myself. :)

Well, at any rate, here it is. #1 from Kit Mountain and the first finish of the year!





Design: Hangin' With My Peeps (discontinued)




Designer: Sue Hillis for Sue Hillis Designs

Fabric Used: 32 count Cashel linen in Fog by Picture This Plus from their Crystal (opalescent) line.

Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 as called for in the chart. 

Stitcher's Notes: Left off wording. Please note that at this time, this chart is not for sale and/or trade. 







Well, I had best be off. Lots to do today, but all of it fun. I hope everyone is having a great week and a good start to the new year! :)
