I saw someone on Facebook posted a picture of their finish of this design and I had to stitch it myself. When I went to kit it up, I found I didn't have any blue 32 count fabric. What? So 9:30 pm found me pouring royal blue RIT dye, salt and boiling water into the kitchen sink...all trying to be quiet because Dash was already in bed asleep! A quick 30-second dip and a good washing with laundry detergent gave me the perfect sky-blue shade. I ironed it dry so I could start right away!

I used one of the buttons I bought for the "Joy" ornament and the called for Mill Hill gold beads. I had never done the rice stitches called for in the border and found them to be a lot of fun. After futzing around with all kinds of bows and trims I settled for the simple ribbon hanger.
Have any projects had you dying fabric (or something similar) late at night after everyone else was abed?
