Overnight Shift Weekend Finish
I am so happy this one is finished. While it went quite quickly, I didn't really enjoy stitching it. The symbols that were used were a bit confusing, so I wasn't able to rip through it as quickly as I could have. Still in all, it *is* finished, and that is all that matters.
Design: Antique Roses (greeting card kit)
Fibers Used: Unknown as provided in the kit. It is probable that it is DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117
Stitcher's Notes: Kit included in a birthday card for mom. Card purchased in Virginia in either 1995 or 1996 at a Hallmark Gold Crown store. Returned to the project on Thursday, January 14, 2016.
Finished Sunday, January 17, 2016:
As of Friday, January 15, 2016:
It is a bit overcast today, so the picture is not as nice as I would like it. The fabric is actually the exact color in the first picture. It's more of a seafoam green, rather than the sage color in the finish picture. DH remarked on the very Victorian feel to it. I think once I get my sewing machine, this one will be turned into a small pillow. I am picturing lots of lace and things.
Well, I had best be off. A headache has now set in and I am in need of a nap. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
