A little weekend stitching

I strated this cute little piece from Little House Needleworks on Thursday and finished it Saturday night. It's a stress relieving piece. Had a family member in the hospital this past week and I always start a new piece to keep my mind off of things. It's my version of a worry stone and it works for me. The chartpack contained the Crescent Colour Threads and I stitched it on 40 count linen over two. Since I only used a single strand of floss, I had tons left over so I started a Ewe & Eye& Friends piece using the same shades. It's nearly done as well and I'll post it soon. Not sure how I'll finish this, I'm thinking of mounting it on top of a papermache' box and stitching the rooster again to make a pin cushion for inside the box. We'll see. I'm off to do school with the kids, have a great day!

  1. This is a lovely finish. I like to stitch on 40ct as well and I find that my thread goes a long way as well. This is especially good as it can be really hard to find some of the over-dyed cottons and silks sometimes.
