Midnight Ends

I've been listening to some very good audiobooks lately so I raced through Midnight at a ridiculous pace.
The border was an absolute pain to stitch. Most of the flowers are composed of 2 colours and then there are all those random single stitches. But it was a small border and I still have memories of Teresa Wentzler borders, so it wasn't the worst one I've ever stitched.
I love the sun. It's so cheery and those eyebrows are fantastic.
Probably one of the best things about this is that as it's a bellpull I know exactly how to finish it! Now I just need to dig out my finishing fabrics to find something suitable.
All in all this was different from most of the things I've stitched recently and it was a very nice change. Now I'm returning to ladies in extravagant dresses :D

What a pretty design. You chose lovely fabric for it. The border may have been a pain but it is very attractive and all beautifully stitched.

Is that a sun? I thought it was the moon. The border looks painful to stitch but amazing just the same. It's a wonderful piece

So pretty! I love the colour of that fabric! Audiobooks are great for stitching.
