First 2006 Happy Dance

Well once again its taken me most of the day to finish something I thought would be mere hours. I finished up the Dinky-Dyes freebie I started back during the third week of December. I got the freebie, fabric and one skein of Dinky-Dyes Silk from the Cross Stitch Cupboard's retreat back in October.

It turned out quite lovely, however I can't find a title for the piece for you however on the
Dinky-Dyes website it is listed as their Nashville 2005 Freebie c2005. Its stitched on 28ct White Lugana using Dinky-Dyes Jacobs Ladder in Silk. I had JUST enough silk to complete this piece... four strands were left from my very last length of silk. So there is very little room for error when stitching this.



If you're interested in this chart I'd be happy to send my copy to some lucky stitcher out there, as I don't intend to stitch it again. I'd rather send it to someone else who will enjoy stitching it like I did. So drop me a line at this e-mail address tkd_chick@hotmail.com with freebie in the subject line. I'll pick a name out of a hat at the end of the week if I get more than one interested stitcher and e-mail you back for you snail mail addy. Simple as that I'm not asking for anything in return.

Now I'll be picking Noah's Submarine back up... I haven't touched it in months!

Celtic Banner is off to a wonderful start, and the Dinky Dyes freebie is a beaut! Wonderful shade of blue, even with the close call.
