Gentle friends the mail was "very, very , good " yesterday!! I got back from Faye my completed Candle Pocket, the First Kit from the Colonial Gathering Club. She did such a wonderful job in the finishing, I know I would have totally botched the whole thing. Here's a snaperoo of my Pocket....
....I am so very pleased with the way it turned out, and again can't thank Faye enough for her superb job... she does lots of finishing and you can contact her through her blog Carolina Stitcher. I would highly recommend her to anyone!!!! Now, I can't wait for the next little project!!!!
I finished up the next band on my "Winter Band Sampler".... I also went back to using the recommended "Mustard Seed" floss.....
.... the colours are a bit off, well, quite a bit off, I jangled it about a bit in photoshop, but taking the picture at night with lamp light and flash sort of wreck the colours, but you get the idea. The next band is composed of big, white snowflakes. It is the band I have been dreading as I really do not like stitching great amounts of white....... but I will push through.
That's about it for today sports fans, I'll not be posting tomorrow, I am taking the day off to go to the one of the first of the Winter/Spring Antique Shows that pop up here in Northern California. It is a pretty big show with some good dealers so I am hoping it will be a good show!!
Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
