A Finish!

Yay, it is finally done. This pattern is Trellis by The Workbasket. I worked it on 40 ct Newcastle linen. The color is Chasescape by Silkweaver. I used one strand over 2 threads and I used DMC. I felt the colors were more vibrant than the overdyes and complemented the fabric better.

I can't decide what to start next. I need a Tuesday night project. I think I am going to crash a SAL on some other blogs and start Toccata II and do Toccata II-sday but, I won't take that to stitching with me. I also want to start Sweet Bird by Midsummer Night Designs that I got for Christmas and Quaker Garden by Blackbird Designs. Maybe I will just start all of them and drive myself crazy until I finish. I also have 2 gift projects going right now and am signing up for another round robin. OK, is something in the water over here?

Office Depot just opened up down the street and they just brought by the nicest gift for the merchants in the shopping center. It is a leather notebook and pen set. I wonder if I can snag that from my mom. I find that since we moved our shop we get more perks from local businesses. When Chick-fil-a opened we got invited to the preview night and about 30 coupons. I could have eaten free sandwiches for every day in January.

Tonight is stitch night at the LNS. I guess I will go and stitch for a little while. I will post tomorrow which project I decide on.

I should have known that was a Workbasket design. I love The Workbasket. It came out just beautiful. Congrats.

"Finally finished"??? You just started the darn thing three weeks ago! It looks really pretty! I think I'm going to do that big thing that Bridget did, but I don't know about the other two yet. I don't know when I will get to it anyway!
