Best Friends - My Big Toe Designs



Hello Peeps!

Today we have a second CJC 2016 finish :)

Best Friends


Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric
Aqua colour from Sew It All




Chart gifted by Rachel




 Started on 14th Jan 2016
Finished on 24 Jan 2016
Total stitching time: 11 hours






Finished off as a pinkeep using
fabric & trim from my stash
The backing fabric is the one you can see on my first picture.

I have decided to not use the provided buttons
to make up the flower and stitched them instead.




Only 13 to go!

Toodles,
Mii

    1. Thank you Vickie!
      Sadly my pictures don't really show the "cloud" effect on my aqua fabric.
      Perhaps I should have put it next to a white piece of Aida, then the contrast would have show more... Never mind, you get the idea :)

  10. Love this.,,The sentiment and the finish :)

    And they're right proper finish finishes!!! Unlike mine.....I tend to get distracted once the stitching's done :D

    1. I don't blame you, it's easily done!
      I really force myself to finish my pieces straight after the stitching... most of the time :)
      I unfortunately don't have a crafting studio/nest/room, so when I have to set everything for finishes, my dining room table end up into a right mess!

      I had the buttons but I found on 16ct they looked a bit overpowering compared to the stitching... so I stitched the flowers too :)
