Today is the new moon for August, and just to prove I'm not just a creature of the night, here's a day light shot of my TUSAL bottle. Newly added are a band from DMC #5 perle cotton 4060 (used to make the scissor fob and needlebook), clippings, odd threads, and blue felt from said fob and needlebook, a bit of gold blending filament and some white linen thread used to complete the piece below, and some DMC #8 perle cotton 957 that I was going to use on a new project but have since rejected that choice. To join the fun on Yoyo's Dragon My Needle blog click here or on the TUSAL button on the right.
This is a piece from The Victoria Sampler one of their Beyond Cross Stitch Learning Collection. This one is Level Six #8 -Curled V in a Fan. I love all of Thea Dueck's designs, she's so talented!
This kit was purchased back in 2005 or 2006 so you may have trouble finding it. Most of it was stitched last year; I just recently got around to putting the beads on it. "I've got plans for how to finish it but it will have to get in line," said the Queen of Unfinished Projects.
Here's my beloved Bob, looking all sauve and debonair. Is it any wonder he talked his way into the house a year ago? Can't imagine life without him now.
