I Still Love Lime Green!

When I got my JCS Halloween issue, I knew immediately I wanted to stitch the one from La-D-Da. However, I had to change it up a bit (of course). After reading alot of comments from bloggers about this issue, I decided to stitch this up today.

Here is what I started with. My pattern, 28ct. home-dyed lime green lugana, DMC Black and Variations #4124.


This was a very fast and super fun stitch and here is what it looks like after finishing it while watching the Twins game tonight.



I just love how it turned out! This lime green was the color of my bedroom when I lived at home. I still love it!

My friend, Joan, is in town this weekend and tomorrow we are getting together for awhile. It will be fun to see her. I will be getting my new scissors, the Gingher Elenas. Cathy ordered these from Mike and Carol's for us. I can't wait to see them. Just can't have enough scissors.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the weekend.
