I am so proud of myself! I love to stitch but when it comes to finishing (moan, groan) I can really put on the brakes and procrastinate. But I went from this (in August of last year, that’s right, 2000 and 8, more than 6 months ago) --
after pulling it out about every 2 months – looking at it – reading the directions - and putting it back – I finally did this. . . today
Bee’s Rule by Milady’s Needle
40 ct Park City Blend (R&R)
Crescent Colors floss
It really wasn’t difficult to finish (I just thought it would be). The directions were clear and easy, I followed them exactly, and the stitched piece fit perfectly into the Lucite ruler.
The back of the stitching and the ruler is lined with a piece of scrapbook paper and enclosed front and back by the plastic ruler. This patterned paper won out over 4 others but I can’t explain why.
Here’s a close-up of the back. It’s sort of glittery and sparkley.
You know, the more I look at it -----
Do you think?
Could it be?
Am I imaging things?
Do these look like little bees
I’m thinkin’ SPRING!!! Bee’s a buzzin’, flowers a’bloomin, bring it on! Tomorrow is officially the first day of Spring here.
(PSST!! One day I'll show you the project that took me 10 years to finish!)
