A One Day Finish


Talk about instant gratification! I was able to start, finish and put together my wonderful little tin pin which is the first of the Essy's Friends kits from Lois at the Elegant Stitch. The picture does not do justice to how cute this little pin is and it was surprisingly easy to finish considering I tend to be finishing challenged. The piece is stitched on special pink fabric dyed by R&R and uses WDW threads in gorgeous colors. Plus is has a heart in it which I love to stitch. I can't wait to wear it to work. Once that was completed, I decided to get started on my Legacy Halloween Sweetbag exchange piece. After putting some stitches in, I'm not sure I'm going to like my choice. I can always keep it if I don't because there's plenty of time to stitch something else. Maybe it's just that it feels weird to be stitching with two threads on 32ct - after working on Plymouth so long, anything other than over one seems huge!

Hi. Couldn't help noticing our blogs have almost the same name... Kind of an unfortunate coincidence.

I lived most of my life in Maine before moving to Europe. I've been cross stitching for about 15 years off & on now.

Hello again. I would really like to have contact with you regarding this blog-name issue. I've put a lot of effort into making my blog unique, including a professional design. I am from Maine, and I miss it. I have also been a cross stitcher for most of my adult life. If you would kindly contact me regarding this issue, I would appreciate it.
