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 

Designer: Jennifer Aikman-Smith of Dragon Dreams

Fabric Used: 28 count white opalescent Lugana

Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in B5200, 415, 550, 552, 554, 744, 776, 809, 818, 938. Rainbow Gallery Fuzzy Stuff in FZ-25 PinkKreinik metallic threads in #4 Very Fine Braid in #002HL Gold

Accouterments: Mill Hill beads in #02014 in Black

Stitcher's Notes: Project began in late 2003 or 2004. Project resumed on Wednesday, February 17, 2016. Stitching completed Thursday, February 18, 2016. Left off 'Coffee Is Magic In The Morning'. 

As of Wednesday, February 17, 2016:

Stitching completed Thursday, February 18, 2016:

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! :)
