Last HD of the year?


"Think on These Things" by My Big Toe.
Start date September 22, 2009
Finish date December 27, 2009
Fabric 28 count antique white something. It's stitched over one.
Total hours 30.75

This is just the right half. The left is your regular 123abc sampler and I don't care much for those.

That brown bit is some random dirt and not part of the design!

Actually this photo is just horrible. The green is not khaki-green. It's a very bright 369, and very subtle in person. I wanted the words to stand out, not the motifs around them.

I had everything except the top and bottom blue borders done. I didn't like what was charted and didn't really want to do it myself because I was convinced that I'd miscount it and muck it up horribly. Several pins, a pencil, an eraser, scrap paper, a calculator and lots and lots of counting later, I got the border to look symmetric and that itself is a mini dance!

I'm waffling between making a pinkeep or a bellpull...any suggestions?

LOVELY! You've had a lot of finishes this year.

Beautiful Blu! Great job and one over one? Wow! I'd love to see it as a bellpull :o)

Congrats on the finish! I think a bellpull will work beautifully.

Your finish is great. I must say that all of the pictures that I take (with my expensive camera) never come out right. I don't understand. If pictures don't look the same as what the piece that you are taking a picture of. Then I must not look like I think I do. LOL Happy New Year. Congrats
