Hope your weekend is going good....I'm having insomnia tonight so here I am at 2:45 a.m. up for the day....hope I can make it through work today :(
Well on to the stitching. I've been stitching again and sweet Sharon let me know that she received my Autumn Exchange for the Seasonal Exchangers group. I had previously asked Sharon what finish I did that she'd like and tin was one of them. So....here's what I did for her:
Publication: Just Cross Stitch Ornament Preview Issue 2006
Fabric: Sassy's Sugared Coffee, 32 ct. lugana
Finished as: Altoid Tin
You can see some marking pins in there...I find those so useful, so I made Sharon some to match the tin. This time I also "beaded" onto a straight pin a wee little "handle" to open the tin with and glued it into the top. I thought this added a little "bling" to the whole deal and it really does help to get the tin open!
Well I've been lying in bed awake before I got up...for over an hour and I've decided to make a list of my "cross stitch" project goals for 2008...yep, obsessive is my middle name. I've got a lot of "ideas" perculating around so I want to put them on paper.
Thanks for coming to visit! I hope you have a great Sunday and beginning to your week :) And until I post again ~ May you stitch with dancing fingers :)
