Blessed Beyond Measure

I completed another project today. This is a pocket for a stitch starter. A stitch starter is to aide you in finding your stitching starting point on a piece of fabric. This pattern came with one.


There is 5 different designs included in this pattern. It was a no-brainer as to which one I would stitch.

"Blessed Beyond Measure"
Blue Ribbon Designs
32 ct. Lambswool Belfast
DMC as charted
Date Stitching Started: 1/3/2011
Date Stitching Finished: 1/4/2011
Date Finished Completely: 1/5/2011


Since I have one of the widest letters in my initials, it was off-center in keeping the motif aligned with the one above so I added a small heart button next to the date.

I am on a roll and having fun! Bonus--just found out that my friend, Joanus and I are going to have a mini-retreat this weekend! Lots of stitching to be done!

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!

Happy Stitching to All!

Love it. Those peacocks are mervelous and your finishing is, as usual, percision itself. Your initials aren't off-- 2011 is too skinny. Just what all of us working on samplers needed a year in need of special spacing.

Have fun at your stictch-in!

Love your latest finish - that's the design I'm choosing for mine too (dunno why you'd choose one with peacocks? LOL). Sounds like you have wonderful weekend plans coming up with stitchy pals - just heavenly :D
