Today was Bible study day and going to the local needlework shop and picking up the framed Shepherd’s Bush “The Promise” piece that was over 15 years in the making….See what happens when I go through my craft room? Here is the finished piece:
I used a suede mat to match another completed Shepherd’s Bush Christmas piece. The two pieces will be hanging near each other.
While at my local needlework store, In Stitches in Alexandria, VA, I could not help picking up some new fibers! Last weekend I ordered some Silk ‘N Colors from The Thread Gather on their Etsy shop. The two colors I picked out were limited editions only through their site. I picked up some more colors today at the shop. Bright bold colors!!
So now to the daily progress! I added bark to my palm tree, I guess I used a Satin Stitch in cotton floss….I am not sure which floss or color, but I am pretty sure it is a Weeks Dye Works product.
