May 19, 2017 Edition Of Finish Friday

I managed to get this guy finished just in time for Memorial Day. Now that summer has decided to make an appearance, I am hoping that my mermaids will come out and play. I would also like to get a few more Americana themed projects completed. 

I picked up this design on the secondary market. It contained the leftover threads and there is enough to stitch this piece at least twice more. This is nice as the design uses both solid and hand dyed silks. Naturally, I made some changes. DH likes how it turned out. I need to see if I cannot find an appropriate frame for this piece. If not, there is always a pillow or no sew finish route that I may take. 

Well, at any rate, here is my latest finish. 

Design: Tiny Flag

Designer: Shepherd's Bush

Fabric Used: 32 count Belfast linen by Silkweaver Fabric in Antique Almond

Fibers Used: Thread Gatherer's Silk n' Colors in Frosted Auburn, In the Burgundy, and Old Lace.  Au Ver À Soie  Soie d'Alger in 1435 and 3424. 

Accoutrements: Mill Hill beads in #03049 Rich Red

Stitchers' Notes: Replaced beads for stitched flowers. Changed 'America' to read as 'We the People'. As the fabric was not included with the kit because it was purchased secondhand, previously purchased fabric from stash was used. 

Time for me to be off. I hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
