September Stamp - Lizzie Kate



A quick post,
I'm still poorly with a cold that my son has kindly decided to pass on to me...
and strangely suffering with one of my eye (despite the all clear following a thorough eye test)

oOo

Better show you my September stamp before the end of the month



My model was stitched on 14ct white Zweigart fabric
and using recommended DMC threads.

I have placed the 3 little red buttons for the apples in the tree.


I have absolutely no idea how to finish this,
the stitching coverage is not grate and I just don't like the overall look of this finish

This explains the lack of enthusiasm for the "finish finish"
I will put it aside and hope for the creative bug to make an appearance soon!

oOo

Now trying to stitch my biscornu for the Christmas swap
I am really struggling and take each day as it comes

oOo

A few days ago I've received a little parcel all the way from beautiful Canada.
I had won a surprise giveaway from
Lynda Ruth over at Purple Pixie Dust



Here are my little treats!!
Thank you so much Lynda Ruth :)


Toodles,
Mii

  26. I'm also at home with a cold.

    Your September finish looks very lovely.
    It make me think of an old school. Mayby you can finish it on a schoolbag.

  29. Cute finish. What about tea staining it? -- since it's an old style school house. That will tone down the white fabric a bit. I hope you feel better soon.
