Lucky #7

I am quite pleased with this latest finish. With this finish, this makes number seven from the Bin O'Shame so far this year. I have five more projects to go and I will hit my mark for my yearly goal for 12 finishes from the Bin O'Shame for the year. This one languished for three years, and to the day when I started it. 

The 40 Count Newcastle linen by Zweigart in Moondust from Silkweaver Fabrics was quite difficult to stitch on. The fabric is actually somewhat dark and the sparkles made it a lot harder to see the holes. However, I managed to power through and got it finished. This also makes the third finish for the month. 

At any rate, here are my efforts. This one will probably eventually be framed, although, it would also make a nice wall hanging or a flat fold finish. 

Design: Be Thankful sampler

Designer: Nikki Lehman of Country Cottage Needleworks

Fabric: 40 Count Newcastle linen by Zweigart in Moondust from Silkweaver Fabrics

Fibers: Crescent Colours in Brown Hen, English Ivy, Finley Gold, German Chocolate, Hickory Sticks and Toasted Marshmallow

Stitcher's Notes: Began project on Friday, September 27, 2013 in honor of Cathey of Pumpkin Patch and Company and her fight with cancer. Stitched only the pumpkins and crows. Finished Tuesday, September 27, 2016. 

Last Update: Saturday, October 12, 2013

Finished on Tuesday, September 27, 2016:

Time for me to go. I hope everyone is having a great week! :)
