Olympic Stitching Part 4

Crazy January Challenge finish #9
Heart in Hand Designs
Grateful Hearts
32 ct Lakeside Linen Navy Bean
Called for DMC threads

This one worked up really fast.

This is the frame I already had for it. Yes, it came from a thrift store. :)

Crazy January finish #10
L'Atelier Perdu
Smell the Flowers
28 ct lugana evenweave-Ivory
Called for DMC threads

After finishing all this over 1 stitching I needed the break of Grateful Hearts easy stitching. Won't this be an adorable threadkeep etui?  Now it goes in my finishing pile.  Uh-oh, it's growing again :)

Only 5 more finishes for the 2012 CJC!!

Carol said...

Wow! You'll be done with the Crazy January Challenge in no time, Teresa! Your latest finishes are darling--especially love the tiny over one piece!!

Barb said...

Great projects. My DIL's favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. I think I'll have to stitch that one up for her. I have been looking for one that is not overly traditional. That one just fits the bill!

Chris said...

Lovely finishes! Awesome frame!!

Vickie said...

Great finishes. What a perfect find on the frame!

Brigitte said...

Wow, I'm full of admiration - already ten finishes of the Crazy Challenge 2012. That's really something. These frames from thrift stores are sometimes perfect for our projects, aren't they? It's a pity that there is no such thing here.

Great thrift store find. Know what you mean about the over one.....ugh....but it looks so nice when done. Nice job on both.

Penny said...

Lovely finishes and a wonderful frame too! You did a great job on the over one - so tiny! I never seem to find anything when I visit the thrift store. :)

Grateful Hearts has the perfect frame! I love getting frames at thrift stores too.
