I Stitched!

Yessiree I did and I have my first finish of 2015.


Something about this series really appeals to me. I just love the look of chalkboards but they are so messy. This way I get the chalkboard but not the mess!


I have an idea for my finish using this little chalkboard I found at Wal-Mart. I think with a bit of Briwax and some ribbon it will be cute. I just hope it turns out like the picture in my head.


Stay tuned!

I think these charts are so cute but I am struggling to find them here in the UK so far :(

Cindy's Stitching said...

Really pretty Myra. I haven't seen those designs. Sighhh, something else i want .

Brigitte said...

Oh Myra, this is such a lovely series. I hadn't seen it before but as I'm knee-deep in stitching monthly designs this series really appeals to me. Great idea to display them in a chalk board.

Chris said...

Yea! It looks great!

Carol said...

I think I'll be stitching these, too, Myra, and after seeing your darling finish, I must move them to the top of my list :) I know your display idea will be fun and creative--can't wait to see what you have in mind...

Have a wonderful week...

P.S. Can I mention once again, just how happy I am to have you blogging again???!!!
