The Return Of The Oriental Beauty

I decided to pick this project back up, which has languished for quite some time. It was culled from the Bin O'Shame projects. This is another long term project that has been left to sit. Although this one is not as old as my last project, nine years is old enough, methinks. I am quite happy to continue this trend of stitching from my Bin O'Shame stash. It makes me feel quite accomplished and industrious. 


At any rate, here it is. Number four from the Bin O'Shame :


Design: Oriental Beauty

Designer: Julia Hawkins

Fabric: 28 count white Monaco

Fibers Used: Unknown as provided in the kit

Stitcher's Notes: Design taken from the September 2007 (Issue 190) UK Cross Stitcher magazine. Kit began October 2007. Resumed stitching Sunday, January 17, 2016.




As of Sunday, January 17, 2016:



Once I have completed this one, I will be a third of the way through my unofficial goal of 12 finishes for the year, all of them coming from the Bin O'Shame. Cause for a small happy dance, no? :)

Time for me to be off. I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
