Skipped A Season

But really, it's not my fault. I was in my LNS the other day, picking out floss for the Valentines' and Easter 2017 Flip-It series by Linda Ebright of Lizzie Kate. During my color matching, I happen to come across a particular color combination that I knew would be absolutely perfect for a summer themed Now I Know My ABC's by Barb Adams of Blackbird Designs. I quickly purchased what I needed and started the same day. I finished the stitching the next day, and I am so pleased at the way it turned out. I have a fabric in mind for Spring and Fall, however, I do need to experiment with a floss toss before I make my final choice. 

Well, at any rate, here is the summer version of Now I Know My ABC's:

Designer: Barb Adams of Blackbird Designs

Fabric Used: 25 count Natural Oatmeal Floba by Wichelt

Fibers Used:  Caron Collection Waterlilies in #181 Ocean Breeze (Dye Lot #CS201613).

Accoutrements: Shell found on the beach at Half Moon Bay, California on Friday, March 17, 2017. Crab pendant by Bead Landing for Michael's from the Tahiti collection. 

Stitchers' Notes: Began Thursday, March 16, 2017. Stitching completed on Friday, March 17, 2017. Substituted some of the punctuation for various motifs. Will stitch this design in spring and fall themed fabric and fibers. Second of four in this seasonal series. 

I am not too entirely sold on the crab in the lower right hand corner, but I may leave it anyway. It's a bit large to be there as it is. I may pop around to Michael's to see if they have any other fun summer charms or pendants that can be used. 

Time for me to be off. It's dinner time and I need to get prepped for tomorrow as well. I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
