I had a finishing day this week...
I found a tray for $8 but used my HL coupon to bring the price down. I found some pretty fabric on sale in the sewing section and picked up a piece of 5 by 7 Sticky Board.
Here is the finished piece. I added some Easter Eggs I had on hand so I was able to finish this for under $10. This is stitched on 32 count Patriot's Brew. All the fancy flosses were in my collection...most were Colour and Cotton. I would say I finished this piece for under $10.
My vignette on the Breakfast bar....See the Easter Chimes book from Diane? I thought it was perfect for this area.
My LNS called me to say that some things I had ordered had finally arrived.
I had put in an order for the whole year of Brenda Gervais' s Word Play back in July 2018. Well better late than never.lol This was my birthday present to myself last year! I think I will start with July.
I also picked up this piece of 32 count Crystal Relic for Yule Tide on Thistle Hill. I have had this chart for a year or so and I was in no hurry to stitch it until I saw the Stitching Group at Cross Stitch Peddler stitching it! I would have never picked this fabric on my own...it has a bit of glitter in it. Marlene ordered a piece for me. I am using all the called for Fancy Flosses and I have to say that I want to just sit and stitch on this one. It is so much fun. I was going to leave off the border...until I saw it in person. It really makes this piece. Sometimes you just have to see a chart stitched to appreciate the beauty of it.
I really should work on some of my older WIPs but the struggle is real....once you find a piece that keeps calling your name, you have to answer!!
