Here are is another recent finish--Remember Me by Blackbird Designs, done on a brown evenweave with the recommended floss. This one is looong and it's kinda difficult to get a good picture of it but I really liked how it turned out. You probably can't tell from my lousy snap but I trimmed it with a brown chenille from one of my favorite eBay destinations, the Victorian Motto Sampler Shop. If you're not familiar with this shop, the owner has great overdyed floss and awesome new trims and goodies--chenille, rick rick, buttons, etc.
And my second finish--Crowns and Letters from Arachne's Silken Web. Not my usual type of thing to stitch--I won this chart from the online needlwork show a few years ago--but I did enjoy it. These motifs are from an 18th century German sampler. I wanted to make this into a pincushion for my mom for Mother's Day--if my own kids give me time, that is :)
Well, I had more, but speaking of kids my DS is awake (at @ 7:00 on a Saturday *sigh*) and bugging me for the computer, sooo...Until next time, happy stitching!
