Queen of Quite a Lot Finish


Here is Queen of Quite a Lot by The Scarlett House finished! I decided to change the colors to pink because this queen prefers pinks/fuchsia's/purples ;-) This was fun to stitch. I decided to be frugal and stitched this in DMC rather than NPI. I used a random piece of R and R fabric-of which I don't recall the name. I really liked the way the black thread popped off the fabric. Stitch count is 111w x 66h. It will be framed eventually and I think a bold black frame will be most appropriate for it. The chart is up for grabs, leave me a comment and I will pull a name on Friday March 22.  Edited to add that Terri of Dixie Sampler won the chart!

Nothing else exciting going on around here. I have just been busy with work, kids, appointments. The usual stuff. I have stashed a little since market, I am hoping to get my charts tomorrow. I bought a couple of La D Da charts-Krissy Nelson and The Red House. Also, a couple by Blackbird May Basket and Dear Daughter which I want to stitch for Alexis. Have you seen that darling kit by Samsarah called Commence Having Fun!? Since I love coffee related cross stitch-I had to have it.

Since I have actually finished something-I am going to start something new and that will be Ohio Treasure by Threadwork Primitives. The colors are just divine. In fact I am off to start now. Have a blessed week friends.

xoxo

Super cute! Please add me to the draw - I'd love to stitch it up for a friend of mine! (And I'd probably borrow your color idea since she's a fan of pink and black herself)
