Another update on my stocking
Almost there! So close I can taste the finish. I just have to finish his name, the backstitch in the toe and put the beads on and we're done. Annnnd, it only costs $25 or so to have this finished. Woo hoo. Come on and happy dance with me!
I took a lot of stuff over to be framed at the LNS today. Julie, they LOVED the Enchanted Fabrics for Sheep on the Meadow. We did a good job picking. I found two or three great pre-made frames at decent prices, so we're using those. The sheep are getting a worn beaded frame, that matched them, and my beautiful New Birth of Spring is getting a frame that feels like a tree branch. AND a pretty mat. It wasn't too expensive for all of them to get done, $450, but it's a once a year thing, so not too bad.
I did pick up a couple charts. I was inspired by Native Texan to do Belle Fleurs by JBW, but I am doing it in MY floss. Wow, that's a kinda cool thing to say, I am doing something in floss I did. HMMMM. I mostly kitted up some charts though. I am stitching ONLY patriotic things until the 4th of July, so wanted to get started.
And I thought I would put a photo of my hand-dyed flosses. These aren't the best pics of them, but remember it was just 4 colors.
