Good morning dear friends,
Happy Friday!! I am pleased to announce my first finish of the year. WooHoo! As I mentioned in a previous post my only stitching goal this year is to TRY and stitch the WIPs that have been laying around for a few years, There are about 4 that need finishing. But once they are finished I will be faced with the dilemma of what to stitch next. I always have a hard a hard time picking out my next project, usually because I am so indecisive over fabric and floss.....
When I started stitching it I knew right away that it was going to be a tribute to my Mom who passed away May 2004.You can see progress from that post Here So in place of the flowers I added her initials and date of birth. I used a piece of 28ct even weave and DMC.
I started this one on November 30th and finished Jan 8th.
I was asked by a girlfriend of mine if I would stitch this for her Boyfriend in honor of his best friend who passed away in an ATV accident. So I am going to start it all over again this weekend but I think in blue, gold and green. She is going to give it to the boys Mother.
I probably would have been finished a few days sooner but on News Years day and the day after I spent it winding floss. I had fun doing this, it was mindless and relaxing HaHa!
How do you store your DMC? Do you wind it? I use to keep like numbers in ziplock baggies but searching for that ONE floss is time consuming. This is way more efficient :)
Well that's all I have for today. I hope you all have a blessed and happy day.
