Easter Friday Finish

I just love this new series by Linda Ebright of Lizzie Kate. They stitch up so, so quickly and they look darn cute to boot. After the completion of the Love chart, I will be all caught up until the release of the next designs. I have my fabric all purchased and set aside for the remaining 4 designs. I cannot wait for them to come out. I am really looking forward to stitching these and seeing how they will turn out. One of the things I really love about my hobby is the ability to adapt colors and elements to my liking. I love playing around with colors and watching a project turn out, often quite differently than the pictured model!

Well, at any rate, here is my latest finish. Just in time for Easter this year!

Design: Basket (#F-166 from the 2017 Flip-It series)

Designer: Linda Ebright of Lizzie Kate

Fabric Used: 27 count antique white Fanciful Flowers stitch banding in antique white, green and yellow by Mill Hill. Item Number MH10450130 in 4.5 inch wide banding. 

Fibers Used: Anchor six strand embroidery floss in 57, 119, 242, 293, 379, 380, 398, 403, 433, 1002, and 1094. Rainbow Gallery Arctic Rays thread in #AR17 Christmas Green.

Stitchers' Notes: Began Thursday, March 23, 2017. Finished Friday, March 24, 2017. Stitch banding distributed by Wichelt. Substituted called for fabric and floss for those of my own choosing. Second finish of seven that will be released throughout 2017. 

Well, I best be off. Tons to do as always. Next up in the Q-Snaps is Love. Can't wait to get started on this one. The colors are just lovely and I think it will probably be my favorite so far. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
