Woohoo...it's finished!


Oh my goodness....I'm so glad this is finished....loved stitching it, but I'm pleased to take it off the scroll frame and start something else!

Here it is in all it's glory....Simple Treasures....


Mmmm....so, what to stitch now....should I be good and stitch something from my stash or should I splurge on something new? :)  Any advice?!!! 

I had a few requests about the DMC colours that I had used for this Margaret Sherry mouse that I showed in my last post...


...such a cute design!

The colours I used were...

Mouse - 436, 437,738, 5200
Paws and tail - 352, 353
Holly - 987, 986, 164
Berries - 666
Stocking - 156, 341, 3747, 912, 954, 955
Fur trim - 5200, 762, 415
Back Stitch - 3799

....hope that helps anyone wanting to stitch him using dmc threads.

Until next time...happy stitching!

Rhona

Hi Rhona,

I would like to say how nice it is that you have finished Simple Treasures. I took a really long look at it and boy, you did a wonderful job, there was alot of back stitching that I could see. How long did it take you to do. I do hope you now pick a nice easy one to do after finishing such a long hard stitch. I do love it very much. Good work. Lynda Ruth

Beautiful finish! There is a lot of very nice details in that piece. Congratulations! And I say do what you want for your next piece. Look through your stash and see if anything stands out that you bought and really, really want to do still. If not, then go buy yourself something new. You earned it! :)

Great stitch. Such a cute little mouse. My daughter would like the beachy theme.

Wendy said...

congratulations! It came together really fast in the end. Be good and stitch something from stash! So unlike me to say something like that, what's wrong with me?
