Three For Three In Time For Finish Friday

And that makes three for me. I decided to keep on my roll of stitching from the Dans Mon Jardin book by Véronique Enginger of Les Brodeuses Parisiennes. I just adore this book. I love the way the designs stitch up and I love the fact that they are elegant and quick to stitch. I am sure that some of the designs will take longer than others, but that's true of pretty much any hobby, yes? 

Design: Les étiquettes des bocaux (Jar Labels): Clothespin with Flowers from the book Dans Mon Jardin

Designer: Véronique Enginger of Les Brodeuses Parisiennes

Fabric Used:  28 count Cashel linen of unknown manufacturer

Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 as called for: B5200, 151, 210, 535, 552, 676, 677, 729, 747, 3011, and 3348. 

Stitchers' Notes: Book purchased February 2017 in Japan Town, San Francisco, CA. Teacup jar label first project of three. Began Thursday, March 2, 2017. Finished Friday, March 10, 2017. Design number three of three. 

I have already visited our local Michael's and unfortunately, I am unable to locate more of the frames that I used on the first design in this series. I will have to drop 20 and punt, but I am sure I will be able to find something quite complementary. 

Time for me to be off. I need to clean up my stitching area and get started on the next project. 

Happy weekend to you all! :)
