A Finish On Thursday

My latest finish is another piece that I have wanted to stitch for quite some time. This was a shop freebie that I picked up at my LNS quite some time ago. I did not have all of the called for Gentle Art Sampler Threads, so I chose the same color palette that was used on my recent finishes from by Véronique Enginger of Les Brodeuses Parisiennes. I loved the colors in that series and thought they were sufficiently spring like for this piece. I had a minor 'Whoopsies!' in that my fabric was not large enough for the border. Which is fine, as I am not a fan of the way the word work is spelled in the original design. 

At any rate, here is my latest Spring finish:

Design: My Wurk

Designer: Loretta Sigmon of At The Hop

Fabric Used: 25 count Natural Oatmeal Floba by Wichelt

 Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in B5200, 151, 210, 471, 535, 552, 676, 677, 747, 3688, 3766. 

Stitchers' Notes: Shop freebie obtained at LNS. Converted original threads from Gentle Art Sampler Threads to DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117. Left off border and wording as fabric was fabric was not cut large enough. 

I will need to find another quick and easy project to do while I await supplies to come in for another project, this one for summer. I may finally get around to that floss toss for a spring themed Now I Know My ABC's by Barb Adams of Blackbird Designs. As always, we shall see! :)

Hope everyone has a fantastic week! :)
