A Wee Bit O' Somethin'

To tide me over while waiting on the mail. I was informed on Monday that the next part of the 2016 Tiny Round Robin was making its' way to me. Nothing was really grabbing me in the  Bin O'Shame or even in Kit Mountain. Then I remembered that I had this book and I have wanted to stitch all of the projects in the book. There are 10 total, so plenty to do. I thought that this was going to take me a fair amount of time to finish, but I began during the lunch hour today and with a few starts and stops finished at around 5:30 PM today. I will probably make this into an actual pin cushion. That is once I procure a sewing machine! :)

Well, at any rate, here is a tiny thing that I stitched. 

Design: Bluebird's Needles and Pins (from the book With Needle and Thread)

Designer: Blackbird Designs

Fabric:  36 count Edinburgh linen in Antique White

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Babbling Brook, Carnation, Fern Frond, Rouge, Slate and Tree Trunk. 

Stitcher's Notes: One day start and finish on Wednesday, May 18, 2016. Leaflet Silo finish. Stitched used were full cross stitch and Algerian eyelet. Unfortunately, this book is not for sale or trade. 

Welp, time to be off. I need to clean up my stitching area and think about the next project to work on while I await the arrival of the next installment of the 2016 Tiny Round Robin

Hope everyone is having a great week!
