WIP Wednesday February 17, 2016 And A Finish

This project took a bit longer than anticipated as this month has been very, very busy. Still in all, this will make finish #7 for the year, and it's only mid February. I have only 5 more finishes to hit my unofficial yearly goal of 12. I really wanted the 12 to come exclusively from the Bin O'Shame, however, one takes one's finishes where one can, yes? 


Well, here she is. The stitching at least is finished! :)



Design: Birds and Berries (needlecase) from the book A Stitcher's Journey



Designer: Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs

Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in 640, 642, 842, 3041, 3799, 3782.

Fabric Used: 36 count smokey white Edinburgh linen by Zweigart

Stitcher's Notes: Began Wednesday, February 3, 2016. Design converted from the called for The Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Crescent Colours  cotton flosses to DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117

I had best be off. Time to straighten out the stitching area and pick something else back up. I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! :)

That is such a gorgeous piece! It will be a beautiful needlecase. I love the one on the cover of that booklet too. Of course, who doesn't love Blackbird Designs charts in general!
