I Rocked It

Just so you know...I'm the freakin' finishing master! Don't you love it when you feel that way about yourself? Doesn't happen often enough though, does it? I spent some time finishing yesterday afternoon. I did the little box project I was working on and the exchange for Angela too. Both came out very well. I can't show you Angela's item yet but I can share my little box:


Design ~ Rosemary Pinkeep
Designer ~ Blackbird Designs
Fabric ~ 32 count Belfast Linen, Daffycat Dyed
Fiber ~ DMC
Finish ~ Pinbox

Yes, I stitched the Rosemary Pinkeep design ~ again. There is something about it I really-really like. I used the little round paper-mache box I finished the other day and attached my stitching to the lid. The chenille I dyed was used too. See my preparations in this post. I'm very pleased how it turned out, as if you couldn't tell.



Yesterday, Fed Ex delivered my business cards from PrintRunner. Awesome. I'm excited to have them and I can't wait to send these out with exchanges. They look really fantastic...glossy & bright and exactly what I'd hoped for! Thank you PrintRunner!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!
