Last night I took a break after hours of model stitching and worked up a freebie called "My Friend" by Betty at http://primitivebettys.blogspot.com/. I used a remnant piece of 32 ct. Lt. Taupe Lugana, went thru my silks and chose Crescent Colours "Wild Berries", Weeks Dye Works "Madison Rose" and a Limited Edition sage green color by The Gentle Art (no name--received it as a freebie at BushMountain's Super Bowl Sunday event), also grabbing some Mill Hill seed beads in a pale pink (#00145). I wanted to try a finishing technique using beading that I'd seen on one of the message boards I check out for new ideas.
On another note, I'm only a few followers away from the 3 L*K chart giveaway! Thank you to those of you who have just started following me as well as those of you who have been here since Day 1. I have some fun ideas of things to do within the upcoming weeks and I really appreciate all the feedback and lovely comments.
Also--congratulations to my friend Melissa L. who completed her first punchneedle piece after watching my tutorial on YouTube and then coming up to my office on her lunch break for a "make sure I'm doing this right" pep talk. :) That's all for today...model stitching is calling my name before the weekend is over. Have a great night and just keep stitching! ~Nicole
