A Finishing Kind of Weekend

While my 2 stitching buds were out battling the elements trying to get to Madison, WI for a class, I was having a little finishing weekend.

I had stitched this design from "The Sampler Girl". It is on 28ct. Natural linen and I picked my own colors. This is a birthday present for my sister.


I think she will love it, her favorite color is purple too!

Next, I FINALLY got caught up with my "Pink Stitches.


On the left is my December pink stitch. This is a design from gazette 94. It is stitched on 28ct. Rocky Mountain Purple Lugana with DMC Variegated #48 and finished as a pinkeep. The middle one is for January. It is a "Snowman's Quaker Christmas" by Midnight Stitching. It is stitched on 28ct. pink Gingham linen with Weeks Bubblegum, DMC White, Black and #720--another pinkeep. The one on the right is a design from Primitive Betty's called "Oh Sweet Valentine". It is stitched with DMC #3805 and DMC Variations #4110. I am very fond of this one as it has a peacock in the stitched design and I was lucky to find some pink fabric with peacocks on it. I am sooooo excited to be caught up on my pink stitches.

Here is a picture of my "pink" basket now.



And, last but not least, I finished my ornament for the 2009 Christmas Challenge. It is the same design as the pink one above with the snowman, except I did it in traditional colors changing the green to DMC Variations #4045.



I only have 1 thing left to complete my goals for February. I better get busy, the next installment of Isa Vautier's SAL is due out soon!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching! :)
