New Finishes

At long last, I can reveal what I've been stitching. It was a gift for a friend, and while I was waiting for the postman to deliver it, I stitched another project. That way, I can post both pieces at the same time.

For all who helped me find Victorian Elegance, a big thank you. It was what I wanted to stitch for Adana. But, not in the original colors. Pastels. The silk was Threadgatherer Easter Egg, and the fabric a silk/linen blend. I think it turned out very nicely, and now I turn to making a set for myself. I'm considering deep purple on lavender.

While I was waiting for the postman to deliver, I stitched on Indigo Rose Bead Blanket. I have to say that I loved every minute of stitching this. The colors were great, in Waterlilies by Caron and the fabric had this lovely feel to it. I'm really pleased at how it went together.

I seem to be having a difficult time posting tonight so I'll leave it as it is and maybe the blog genies will fix it all up. Even my fonts keep changing. Until next time, happy stitching!
