Um so....remember when I showed you this pretty WIP from Prairie Schooler??
Well......I finished it last night.
Isn't it cutie?!!??? I love it! I will say - working on a larger project with tight stitching can be grueling on 40 count. BUT, 40 count is my new love. Like I said in my previous post about this piece, I didn't change any of the fiber colors (shocking, I know, since that's my new favorite thing to do), so this is stitched in all the original DMC. The fabric is Autumn Blush from Silkweaver.
I've moved on to a new project already (again, shocker, I know), this time a wedding gift for a friend at work. Remember all these fun things I did for the work bridal shower?? Well, I also promised Danielle that I would stitch her something. I had something in the works, but halfway through it, decided I didn't like it anymore. This happens from time to time, unfortunately, so I had to pick something else. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, and the last time I was at my LNS, saw something perfect from My Big Toe designs and it's called "The Wedding". It's simple, yet so pretty, and it's easily customizable - it's stitched in only 2 colors. So, I'm stitching it in Blackbird (Crescent Colors) and Bubble Gum (Weeks Dye Works).
At first, I wasn't quite sure I liked how bright the pink was against the fabric and the Blackbird. But, as I kept stitching, it really started to grow on me, and I think it'll work out just fine. Danielle is a pink person (I'm a purple person myself, so it's tough to not stitch this in something a little more subtle ;-)), and this will definitely fit her taste more than what I was originally stitching for her. I hope she likes it!!!
That's it for tonight, kids. I'm fighting a killer headache that wants to turn into a full-blown migraine SO BAD, but I refuse to let it. So, I'm heading to bed. Way lame for a Saturday night, but whatcha gonna do.
Love and stitches :-)
