I sure don't understand how time flies past so quickly. One minute it's spring and the next it's fall. I had grand plans to show another round of finishes. I even took the pictures, and that's usually the sticking point for me. So how about if we get right to the pictures?
I started Sampler aux Bouquet I by Jardin Prive in January as part of a stitch-along at Sampler World.
I saw this Val's Stuff design stitched up at the Mom & Me Forever shop (now closed, boo hoo!) and planned to stitch it on a low count fabric with perle cottons - like a Bent Creek Zipper. That plan went sideways when I tossed the floss on a tiny scrap of bright yellow fabric in my stash.
The bunnies project will eventually become a little fob or ornament, and I thought it called for fun, bright beads. I went to Michael's with Ginger and Amy and found exactly zero beads that were even vaguely appropriate. I was disappointed and decided to look elsewhere. I wandered through the clearance section on my way out, and look what I found!
Next on the list is a Bent Creek Zipper, Cabin Snowglobe.
My last project has a story to tell. Monique started it, and she chose a beautiful thread color for this monochrome design - Carrie's Creation floss in Olive. The design is Midnight Stitching's Quaker Floral. At some point Monique grew weary of it ( I never did hear the full story on that!) and sold the whole kit-n-caboodle to our friend Linda at a stitch-in.
Linda loved the color too, and thoroughly enjoyed stitching it until...she realized the alphabet in the middle was missing the letter I. This bothered her every time she looked at it, so she sold it to me at the next stitch-in.
Thanks to everyone who continues to follow my sporadic blog posts and to those who leave comments! I really appreciate it!
