I had a finish way back in July and I forgot to post it. This, it turns out, was a good thing, since I have something to blog about. The last week has passed with exactly seven (count 'em seven) minutes of stitching. One a day when I pick up Minx, put in five stitches, stare at her, put her back down and wander away.
I blame the fall weather, the ending of my co-op work term, and impending school. My woes aside, here's what you're here to see:
Alexandrina's Fall Dreams Biscornu
Start date July 4, 2010
Finish date July 25, 2010
Fabric 28 ct black lugana
Floss GAST Daffodil, GAST Tuttifrutti
Total time 11.75 hours
I had to leave off the border. Why had to? Because I thought the fabric was 32 ct, and the size I cut would have been perfect. It wasn't so perfect since it was actually 28 ct.
My brother's immediate reaction upon seeing it was to tell me that I had "a bad yellow" since "it's all faded in parts" and "you should get a refund". Tuttifrutti isn't as varigated so he couldn't tell.
