Hi all! Just got home from grocery shopping for our Thanksgiving meal. I can't believe it's almost the end of 2016 but after the year we've had, my daughter and I, 2017 can only be better!
I have a finish! Here's Wicked by Barbara Ana..
I'm not sure of the fabric I used but the floss is DMC variations and regular. The orange is called Chilean Sunset or #4130 and up close it has some pink in it and it's very pretty. The floss color of the key though I don't know as I lost the plastic sleeve it came in but I thought it was a good color for a key! I started this in 2014 and put it in time out because somewhere in the key handle is a counting mistake. I know where it's off but it doesn't really mess with how it looks. As for the date in the cartouche, I didn't know what to put in it because I misplaced the number graph that came with the chart. I didn't want the 1976 that the designer has on the model so I just stitched that 8 in there. I also shortened the web to the spider on the right so that it stayed in line with the bottom of the design. This is one cute design and just makes me want to stitch all the other Barbara Ana designs!
Giveaway time! My 6th Blogaversary is a few days before Christmas but I want to do this early enough in time. So sign up starts now and ends November 27th. I know everyone will be busy throughout next week. Open to followers on Blogger/Google and Bloglovin and I will mail overseas too. You have to let me know 3 things though:
1. Are you a linen stitcher or Aida stitcher? I have chart/fabric combos for either one. So you just
mention which one you would like and just the one.
2. What kind of candy do you like? It's cooled down now so I can mail chocolate!
3. Do you like Christmas-y scents and what kinds? Examples: baked goods scents, spruce/tree,
and so on.
This is a Prim kind of giveaway, the prizes are prim looking, rusty, etc. Here's what is for the linen crowd..
Comes with 32ct linen called for.
For the Aida stitchers is this LK chart of Santa with a nice chunk of 14ct dyed Aida
Winner gets their of choice of linen or Aida and all the goodies to go with it. If the winner chooses the Aida, then the linen package without goodies is still up for grabs and I will draw names for whoever chose linen in the first place and vice versa. Is that understandable? I don't know why my giveaways are so convoluted!
It's a short post this time around. I spent most of my stitching time on Wicked so I have nothing else to show. As soon as I post this, I have to put together my exchange project. I don't know why I've been procrastinating on it but it has to be mailed on the 30th so I better get with it.
I just want to say Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate and Happy Stitching to those who don't. I'll be back on the 27th or 28th to announce the winners of the giveaway. Good luck and take care! I'll leave you with a funny picture of two Saguaro cacti Somewhere in Arizona.
This is a hold up, Pardner!
