Two Of Three On Finish Friday


This little guy was stitched up a lot quicker than I thought it was going to be stitched up! I began this one right after I had hung up the finish from yesterday afternoon. I had a good bit completed before I went to bed and I managed to finish this piece just a bit ago. I need to get to Michael's to see if they have the same frame or something similar, as I have a feeling that the last one in the series, the clothespin with flowers, will go just as quickly. 

Well, here it is, in all its' spring time glory: 



Design: Les étiquettes des bocaux (Jar Labels) Yellow Teabag 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: 151, 471, 535, 676, 677, 734, 3011, 3012, 3348 and 3688. 

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 3, 2017. Design number two of three. 



Off I go to start on the last of this series. I have really enjoyed stitching these beautiful designs. 

Have a great weekend, everybody! :)
