September's Pink Stitch

I just finished my pink stitch for September. This was such a fun and very quick stitch. It is Prairie Schooler's "Stitch to Win" (Pink House). It is stitched on 28ct. Antique White Cashel Linen with DMC as charted. I finished it as a floss tag and am thrilled with the results.

UPDATE: I have had several inquiries about the heart eyelets. I get them at Michaels in the Scrapbook area. They come in a pack of white, red and pink hearts.

Unfortunately I don't have any pink rings and I'm not sure if they make them in pink. I might have to get my pink spray paint out. Where is David when I need him? LOL!

I've been getting alot of stitching done lately and am happy about that. I'll be getting alot more done as my hours at work are being cut for the next 3 months. I have to take 7 full days off and will have multiple weeks with 4 hours less, all with no pay. Good thing I have plenty of stash! Monday is my first day off and plan on doing some finishing.

Thanks for stopping by and tomorrow is the big drawing for the Sisterhood pattern.

I think this is the perfect finish for this pattern! Where did you find the heart shaped eyelet? I want to make this for a friend of mine. Thanks for the inspiration =)

The house is so cute. Where did you get the heart eyelet?

Thanx Jill, I had never seen them and would like some for my stash.
I have a crop o dile and have used it once. lol. Need to make some floss tags. Actually I saw an ornament somewhere that had an eyelet in each corner and the hanger was attached.Thought it was a neat idea.

May the stitch be with you,

That is a lovely ornament Jill. I admire your sticking with your pink stitch a month to honor your friend.

How very sweet! Beautiful finish, Jill!

I've not seen pink book rings either...some spray paint would be perfect!

This little piece is so cute, you just have to love it. And I hope you'll find such a pink ring for the floss tag.
