|"Time To Blossom" By The Bay Needleart|
Oh my, the sun is shining, YEAH!!
I just finished a new design called "Time To Blossom" and that is what I am hoping for.
The stitch count is 63 x 95, I stitched her on 28ct Waterlily linen by Wichelt.
The finished size is 4.5 x 6.78. This fit in my 5 x 7 frame but it was up to the edges.
I decided my frame needed a little something extra so I stitched the flower again on the 28ct linen and followed with my "Stitch An Inch" finishing directions (See here )
|Cross stitch flower on 28ct linen, make fabric tight in hoop|
|Use Aleen's Fabric Fusion, apply to the back of the stitching, let dry for approx 4 hours.|
|Cut out flower close to the edge of stitching, Cut 2 pieces of green wool for leaves 1( 1x2) and 1(1x1)|
|Cut around green wool shapes to form leaves.|
|Place on top of frame for a general idea of placement|
|Using a green marker and a ruler, make a straight line for the flower stem. And glue in place. :)|
all Finished !
Thank you for reading my blog and I have one more thing to share. If you have sent me an email and I have not responded within a day or two, please email me again. I will not be offended. I have 4 email addresses that I check constantly and my AOL acct will delete my message after I read it from my phone. I try my best to remember if I have one to reply to when I get back to the business computer but it could get over looked. I am human , prone to mistakes :). I have been blessed, between the stitchers that have signed up with shops and people that have signed up with me, we have over 500 stitching the sampler. I spend a lot of time answering emails and by no way do I mean to disregard any one.
Well thank you for reading my concern, and I truly am thankful to all of you.
Have a good day and until tomorrow
