Two Finishes and MIOM

I have two happy dances to report. My zipper is finished - including the button. This is Bent Creek's Sow Kind Seeds Zipper.

My second finish is Part 11 of Terre de France. When next month's part is stitched I will be half done. I think a party is in order!

I started my Move It Out Monday project on Sunday. I'm stitching La-D-Da's Bless This House over 2 on Cork linen. It is like a Zipper! I changed all of the fibers to perle cottons. This was a real challenge, because the design is charted for Sampler Threads. I found good Weeks matches for most of them and chose Caron threads (Watercolours, I think) for the rest. Heather (the Me of Mom & Me) and my friend Linda from Violet Threads helped me choose the linen and floss. Thanks you two - I owe you! I absolutely love the way it is turning out. Here is my progress as of Sunday:

I took this picture outside - it shows the true colors of the floss but really washes out the fabric color. The fabric is much darker.

That's all for now. Hopefully more tomorrow!

Your projects are beautiful! I'm going to ponder getting something out of my closet every Monday (after the children are back in school) and see if I can get more accomplished. Right now, seems I have a bunch of stuff going & don't seem to FINISH FINISH them until the fair rolls around ...
