My first finish was Prairie Schooler's Bird Song II. Boy, was that a fun stitch! I will get out and find the perfect frame for it.
And speaking of framing, I have decided I shall hang all my framed stitching that is not already in place. I usually have just switched it out for the seasons, but some are not seasonal and languish and others... well, I miss them! So, I have this huge Family Room upstairs, and LOTS of wall space... I am going to go out and get those Command hangers that you don't have to hammer and can easily move around, and just do it! I spend the most time up there...
So, that is all that I finished... I started a piece that has been languishing for over 5 years... I have wanted to do it... it was in my WIPs box even tho I had not yet started it! I had even kitted it! It is called Red Border Study II, and is by Heron House Designs. I do not believe she is in business anymore. But--I will soon have a matching set, because I did the Red Border Study design wayyyy back in 2011, and had it framed. I see it every morning when I wake up (along with about a dozen other favorites!!). I absolutely LOVE the frame, and am hoping I can get this second one done similarly!! We shall see. The fabrics are not the same color (this one is lighter), but they are the same count. And the thread I am using is Ribbon Red by Crescent Colors. I will go back and get the names and stuff to mention when I post the finish, just for comparison. Meanwhile, here is my progress picture! With my signature purple initials! ☺
I will be modifying it a bit, because she leaves room for three initials in the design, and I won't be needing to do that. But I have already figured out what else I will be doing! Stay tuned!
Lastly, one of the things that keeps me stitching, despite all the interruptions (since I have sat down here to do this post, I have been interrupted 2X!!) is watching Flosstube. I don't feel like I have to make videos, but I sure do love to watch them! I haven't quite figured out how to 'like' them or comment, but I will eventually! I have watched people from many different countries now! What fun! So, if you have the ability to watch YouTube videos while stitching, either on a television or a tablet, check into Flosstube... You never know what you will find!
