Tisket A Tasket finish

I just finished up Tisket a Tasket.  I'm not sure why I stitch my small projects months later than everyone else, because each of them have been a very enjoyable stitch.  Could it be I have too many projects?  Nah!

Not sure yet how I'm going to finish this.  I absolutely loved the way that Jeanne finished hers, and I've never done a flatfold finish, so maybe I'll try something like that.

Flower Pot Sampler

I just finished framing the Flower Pot Sampler.  I chose to do mine in Belle Soie Rose of Sharon to match my bedroom.  I really enjoyed stitching this one, and love that it fit in a standard frame.

July 2012 Small

How delightful our next small is!!!  It makes me feel as we are out in a beautiful garden with just a hint of a breeze and the smell of roses in the air!

This lovely design was chosen and stitched (above) by Karin.  Later this month I will share the story of how Karin and I met.  It is the tale of two crazy stitchers!  This month's design is Crown Sampler by Niky's Creations.  And look at the finish that Karin had done for this design.....stunning!   What a great little project to sneak into your bag on a weekend away!

As usual, if you would like to order the whole project kitted up, Cathy at Inspired Needle is ready for you!!!  

The fabric used is Weeks Dye Works Beige and it is available in 30, 35 or 40 count.  There is enough floss in the kit to stitch the design.  The kit price is $29.00 which includes the chart, the fabric and the fibers (and a cute little bag to put them all in!)  Cathy will have a kit with Aida cloth available too; just ask!

So, here we are kicking off the second half of the Year of the Smalls!!  Thanks to everyone for your enthusiasm.  So far, it has all been a total blast.  

Hope to hear from lots of you stitching this design (and any of the past ones.  True confession; I just started Small Token by BBD last night!!).
