Stitching finished

Well I managed to actually finish the stitching on one project and it will now go in my 'to be finished' pile.

This is A French Trinket Box - it is a group project that my EGA Chapter in Columbus, GA is doing. In looking at what I thought was a finished 'stitched' piece, I realized that I had forgotten to fill in the flowers on The Briar Rose Etui from a Jackie duPlessis workshop. The scary part is that I have already started putting this project together!!!Well once again it is a wet day here in Middle Georgia - at the moment it is raining -but they are predicting sleet and possible snow!!! The weather this past year has been crazy, my poor yard is just a mess with all this wetness.

Now I am off to finish picking up the house and then get ready for my Ikebana flower arranging class for tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting - Roberta

Your red stitching is very pretty!

It is a rainy day here too, but I'll have to go to weather.com to see if there is snow in our near future.

I look forward to watching your progress on this piece. Jackie is coming to our Guild to teach this piece too, although I didn't sign up for it.

A very nice box that will be. Good luck with finishing your other project!
Lots of snow here, we're dying for some signs of spring ;)

Have a nice day & hugs, Carolien

Pretty pretties! Funny how much more you can 'see' in a photo than with the naked eye, isn't it? We got about 4+ inches Friday night and Saturday morning - hope this one doesn't trail up this way, too!

Yikes! I've had the same thing happen to me both in needlepoint projects and other craft projects! I thought I was finished, and then found I had forgotten something. Most recently, it was with a paint by number of a tiger. I had him framed and on the wall and realized that I had not added the whiskers to his face - His face was bald! I had to dig the directions out of the garbage can to see where to draw his whiskers! (good thing it wasn't garbage day) Anyway, he now has a face full of whiskers...I won't tell you about the time I had to remove a week's worth of stitches from a needlepoint project...that was just too horrifying!
Happy Stitchin'...

I hope Gingersnap is healing well and can have her collar of now!

I love the little trinket box - it's very pretty!

Your snow pictures look like mine. It was great having snow for a change. Yellow finches are swarming our feeders, too. They always do in February.

Two very nice projects that you have on the go. I hope you can fix the problem and fill in the hearts without un-doing the whole thing.

Beautiful stitching and your blog is lovely, thankyou for visiting mine and leaving me a comment - of course I don't mind you being a follower of my blog.

Love the photos of your garden and the wildlife around.

Your little cat is so pretty, she sounds as determined as my cat can be.
