Saturday Flashback

In the process of hanging some things up for framing I found an extra frame, checked my "Finished" drawer, couldn't find anything to fit, and instead found and finished Scheherazade. This is a design by Papillon Creations that I stitched in the Shahryar colourway on 28ct black lugana. Those were the days...

By finish, I mean I measured out 4 inches, cut and fringed off about 15 strands and called it done. Pathetic, I know.

In much joy I headed off to place my new table topper on a table, only to realize that all the tables in the house have a secondary function as storage surfaces. There is literally no table that is not covered in stuff! If I did use her as a decoration she would be covered in, well let's be honest, junk in two seconds.

*Wonders what to do, since if cleaned the tables would just be covered again within a day...*



And because I apparently stitched this before I was blogging (what!? there was stitching before blogging!?) here are some more pictures (all clickable). It really is a gorgeous design and I just love it on black!

It really is beautiful. It seems to me, you need a new table. Anything that beautiful should have its own place!

Oh, Blu, this is stunning beyond words. I have this chart too and it's one of my "one of these days I'll get to it" charts. I really need to...

Can you make a wall hanging out of it?

Valentina said...
