And I'm going to miss it ..lol when can we start another one ????? ...lol OK I know I'm crazy just ask a few of my stitchy friends heheheh but I still have my marbles along with DJ' s on my shelf so I can't be that bad can I ????
Ok so the final day of the challenge dawned grey, wet and miserable and then the sun bravely peeked out for a few minutes , my feathered friends were all cheeping n chirping merrily in the garden getting their daily bits and bobs in before it started to drizzle abit ....
I got organised and settled down to start my last piece of new stitching .... I'm stitching the "Thread Gatherer" by LHN who else ..lol and I'm stitching it on 28 count flax linen ... I've had the same problem as earlier on in the week of one of the recommend threads disappearing in to the fabric colour.... the crescent colours "Bamboo" didn't work at all, so I went back into my trusty box of goodies and pulled out "Apricot Blush " from the gentle art sampler threads ... I had two of these ,both different dye lots but the peachier one works so much better and seems to warm up the other colours too :)
So here is the last photo of the challenge *sigh*
|"The Thread Gatherer" LHN day 15|
I've been asked how I am thinking of finishing these pieces when I get to them :) well some I am making into cushions/ornaments , some are going to be made into wall hangings and quilted too and some are going to be put onto the box lids I mentioned in an earlier post..which I finally got round to taking a picture of today ..lol
|white bits are canvas pieces|
So now its back to "normality " heheh and getting all of them finished along with the others I had started before this challenge ..... I realised today that apart from it being my birthday coming up soon .(28th Jan .lol )....I shall in February been blogging a whole year sooo I shall have thunk and come up with something to celebrate with :)
