Finally...a New Finish!

I'm not going to bother apologizing or make excuses for not posting in almost three months...eeek! But I hope to be a little more consistent, at least for a while. I will say that the Etsy shop has been keeping me pretty busy and I haven't had as much time to stitch. However, I finally finished "Bagatelle" by Whispered by the Wind on Sunday. I can't believe how long it took me considering it is only about 6.5 inches square...of course, that's on 40 count linen. For those who want the gory details, it is stitched on Lakeside Linen 40 count Strawflower, with Caron Collection Waterlilies (silk) Olive and Geranium. (1 strand) It's a beautiful piece and I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. It just called to me.
Now I'm moving on to the Thistle Celebration by Periwinkle Promises. I can always count on some fun stitches in Barbara Rakosnik's designs.


  1. CONGRATULATIONS! And I must say that there is no better reason to be away so long than making some money!

    Your finish is just gorgeous. I'd say it would make a great pillow.

  2. Woman!!! I thought you had fallen off the face of the earth~~~ Glad to see you have been super busy though.....And, this piece is so colorful and YOU..... Nice job, Faye

  3. Very pretty finish! Those threads go so well with the fabric!!

  4. I love the colors and I think we all have pieces like clue what to do with them, but we just have to stitch them. Beautiful work!
