Blog Rockin'

Wow!  You guys really rocked my blog on the Pincushion post.  116 comments!  That is a record for me.  Thank you so much for you visit and wonderful comments.  There were just too many for me to respond to individually but please know I read and appreciate each and every one.

I really tried to make sure I took nice pictures of my pincushions.  I did a little staging and they turned out pretty well.  What you didn't see was the saboteur that was trying to thwart my careful plans.

 
Do you see the darker black in the upper left corner of this picture?

 
Guess who?

 
Wrestling my backdrop into submission.
 

 
Hi Mom!  I tamed it for you.
 
So... you can see why sometimes my pictures are better than others.
 
I have a finish to show!  (Happy Dance)

"Beggars Night"
Threadwork Primitives
32 ct coffee stained linen/DMC floss

 
As you can see I took the liberty of personalizing it with my initials and the year.  This was such a fun stitch!

And of course my faithful assistant was on hand to make sure my pictures of Beggar's Night were taken with care.  :o)

I hope you are all having a great weekend!

I love your finish. Did you stain the linen yourself? I've thought about coffee or tea dying some of my linen, but I'm too chicken.

You have a great assistant!!
