I pulled a couple of finishes out of that box and started preparing them for final finishing. I got the first of those finished last night watching floss tube.
I then thought, when did I stitch this? I searched my blog the last seven years and I guess I never posted about stitching it! It's a mystery birdie!
Design - Button Up Birdie #1
Designer - Victoria Sampler
Fabric - 32 count tea dyed Lugana
Fiber - DMC
Such a handsome fellow! He turned out very sweet! I really wanted some red chenille to trim him with.
|How to clean up after the murder.|
Oh wait, that's not blood! Last night I poured a little scarlet dye in the sink and tossed in salt and a yard or so of chenille.
But when I washed out the dye and dried it the chenille was coral not red. I settled on making cording out of the 321 and trimmed Mr. Birdie with that instead. Now if I hadn't washed the dye out so thoroughly it would have been the correct red but I don't like the chance of it staining my projects.
Well, that is one down from my giant box of UFFOs. What can I come up with next?
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
