I am FINISHED with work for the week - Yay! it is the weekend!
I FINISHED folding the laundry for the moment - until the kids throw some more in the hamper.
I wish that I was FINISHED with my morning spin, but I still have another hour and a half to go.
..but those are not the real finish that I am excited to show you...
drum roll, please:
I put the last stitch...and attached the flower button I had in my stash to:
"Live Life Simply...Eat, Sleep, Stitch"
As I mentioned, the basic concept for what I stitched came from the Eat, Sleep, Stitch Pattern by Cherry Wood Design Studio...
but I didn't "totally" follow any of the patterns published (see the cover of the pattern above). I started out stitching the pattern for the needleroll using thread color of my choosing...then when the word "Simply" wasn't going to fit on the same line as "Live" and "Life", I decided to center the rest of the words. Lastly, loving the daisy that was included in the patterns, I added that to my creation.
The words and the large daisy are stitched 1-over-1 on 28ct evenweave - using my color combonation. The border is stitched 2-over-2...and the daisy button is my own additon, something that I had in my stash which I thought would be fun to add.
So, now what...how am I going to finish it off? Not sure...pillow? needlecase? try my hand at a flat fold? I am going to have to ponder that one - still...what do you think?
Well, while you and I think about that - here is something I want you to take a look at:
What is in this container?
What is it doing?
Take a guess...and then come back tomorrow for the answer.
In the meantime, have a great Friday and remember
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!
BTW...for multi-taskers...stitching and exercising on the stationary bike and/or walking are near to impossible (tried it and the whole generations of frog families came to visit right after I finished my workout). However, simple knitting and exercising, that can work without too much trouble - - - yet, you do have to watch where the ball of string goes so it doesn't fall to the ground and get wound up in the pedal arm of a stationary bike :)
