A Two Finish Friday

As of late last night, I managed to get two more finishes for the week in, one of which is from the Bin O'Shame. I am very happy with this progress. The finish from the Bin O'Shame is the fourth one for the year, which means as of late February, I am a third of the way to my goal of 12 projects finished up from the Bin O'Shame. Happy day, happy day! :)

Well, let's get started, shall we? 

Finish #1:

Design: Coffee Is Magic

Finish #2:

Design: Love Birds (my title)

Fabric Used: unknown 28 count natural linen

Fiber Used:  Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Tulip

Stitcher's Notes: One day start and finish. Design does not have a title as it was a part of a group of smalls to be stitched. Project taken from the March 2009 (no. 5) issue of the magazine. Project was to be completed during a recent car trip, however, as is the custom, time was an issue. :)

 Michelle Sayetta of Heaven and Earth Designs has issued another challenge on the official Heaven and Earth Designs Facebook group. This challenge is 1000 stitches in stair step stitching. The challenge begins today and runs until March. I did sign up for the challenge for the QS Evil Queen. So, Saturday will be devoted to her exclusively. Sunday will be devoted to the return of the Lady of the FlagI am looking forward to putting some time in on her. She is a very large project and I really would like to see her finished before September 11. 

I had best be off. I need to clean up my work area and get a start to my day. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! :)
