Another Finish...I'm on a Roll

With everything that's been going on around here, it's amazing that I am able to get any stitching done! After our guests left last weekend, I crashed in my stitching chair and started something new. I bought this chart and the fabric (40ct R&R Cappucino) a few year's ago while visiting Shakespeare's Peddler (she was still in Fargo at the time). Sadly, it sat in my basket waiting to be stitched for quite a long time -- but now, here she is:


Goode Huswife
Dutch Strawberries
40ct R&R Cappucino
DMC Fibers

The finished piece is quite small - it measures about 3" x 4" -- it would be perfect for a pinkeep, but I think I'm going to hold off -- I'd like to get this one framed.

Last night I picked up Goode Huswife Three Crows again (you might recall my start on this one a few months ago). I'm going to try to finish this one up over the weekend - it's close.

Tonight we celebrate my DH's birthday - the big 5-0!

Such a sweet finish. I've seen this pattern but it never really did much for me, but now that I've seen yours stitched, I'm glad that the pattern has been re-released. Its cute, small and almost instant gratification! Yours is very pretty!
