A Finally Finshed Object

Just finished this Pine Mountain Pillow Designs Pillow designed by Sandra Workman. Started first week of January and worked on it on an off til today 14 Jan 2017. Second finish of the year. This is Words of Wisdom "Wonderful Life". I received the kit and the pillow form as part of a stitches retreat at Salty Yarns, Ocean City Maryland.  Was watching The Hunt for Red October to finish this up today. Been raining/drizzling here in Maryland today. Great day to be stitching. Hope you all were able too stitch today. Til. Next time, Sue n MD

A Stitching Finish - not yet finally finished

Was Snowing here in Maryland today. Doing laundry and was determined to finish this weekend. This is a Graph of the Month - August/September 2014 named Four Crabs Pyn Pillow by Jeannette Douglas Designs. This was a kit to make a biscornu- Stitched on 32 Meadow Mist linen using the following Classic Colorworks Honeycomb, Crab Cakes and Caribbean Waters. Black beads from my stash were used for the eyes as recommended. I took the first picture and realized I was missing three stitches and the eyes. Then took the second picture actually stitched finished. I have not put together a biscornu before so I signed up for a class at my LNS. If they don't have it I will look up how to finish into a biscornu. I hope you all are enjoying your weekend and able to do some stitching.Til next time,
