Stitching Completed!


Oh, boy, I don't know how, but I finished stitching this tonight even with my bum arm and all! :D I was thinking of lining it with a gorgeous Kaffe Fasset fabric that I have, but it just took the whole piece over and smothered the stitching!! LOL Thus, this quiet little cabbage green roses instead.
I added a little bee to the back, and some french knot rose buds. Wish the pictures would capture the true colors....alas I don't have a Nokia!! Can you see my matching purple metallic colors scissors? :)
Hugs, Deb

That is an bsolutely beautiful finish Deb. I love the rose fabric you're going to use to finish it hope.

I do hope you are doing much better soon. I hate to think of you in pain so sending lots of gentle healing hugs your way.

The little freebie is so sweet! Thank you so much!

OMG, not so fast, Deb!!! You're updating faster than I can say 'atchoo'. Gorgeous finish. And the freebie is so, so sweet. Thank you!!
Hope your body heals up quickly, because stitching with bum arms sounds very painful to me. {{{HUGS}}}

Gorgeous finish, Deb! Hope the arm improves soon. Love the stitching girl with her dog - I wonder who will be first to stitch her? {{Hugs}}

Great job on the rose!

So sorry to hear about all your back/neck/arm pain. That can be horrendous! Hope you get better with it all soon.

Thanks for the freebie chart. Will try and get it printed soon. My ink is low at the moment.

I like what you stitched for the RR piece. Very nice.

I have been eyeing the Beatrix Potter sampler for quite some time now. Love the colors you have picked. Can't wait to see how it comes along.
