Those of you who guessed cocktail glass were right! Sorry, no prizes though!!!
I admit that I did spend most of Sunday stitching it...but it was wonderfully relaxing and I was so pleased with the finished stitching.
The top of the glass is covered with....dare I say it.....french knots! I can hear the groans of those people who hate french knots along with those that can't do them. But this design would be great for those who struggle with french knots - honestly! Since the knots are supposed to represent the salt on the glass, the knots really don't have to be neat at all....in fact, it would probably look more realistic with very uneven knots - who can complain at that?!!!
Here are a couple of close ups of the top of the glass.
Along with the sampler I've also designed a matching coaster (seems fitting!) and a card.
I've started working on the coaster, but haven't gotten too far with it...
I won't be using french knots on the coaster design as they would just get squashed underneath the acrylic of the coaster.
Once I get the samples stitched up, this design will be available on my website. The chart will also be available with alternate wording -
Birthdays should be taken with a grain of salt
Fridays should be taken with a grain of salt
Saturdays should be taken with a grain of salt
Weekends should be taken with a grain of salt
(You will get ALL 5 charts plus the card and coaster design when you order this package)
So now I'm in the process of deciding how to make this into a little gift package. You know how I like to make my cross stitching into little gifts! :)
Until next time...happy stitching!
