A Finish! Happy Dancing!

Hi Stitching Friends 🙂

2012 has been a very patchy year in terms of my stitching plans, so I am really really pleased to present a major stitching finish, Pear Orchard Farm by Carriage House Samplings. I thoroughly enjoyed stitching this design, though it happened in bits and pieces.

Design: Pear Orchard Farm
Designer: Carriage House Samplings
Fabric: 32 count cream Belfast linen
Threads: DMC threads as charted
Finishing: steeped and dyed in Australian organic black tea

Whew! For a while there, thought I’d lost my ability to pull off a finish. I’m one Happy Stitcher right now 🙂

Happy Stitching 😉
