Happy Dance YAY!

I finally have some stitching to show! YAY!
As much as I have not been stitching, I have missed it terribly. On Christmas Day I started this freebie that I found on this blog. I absolutely adore this pattern so it went by rather fast. I even have an idea as to how I am going to finish it but I need to ponder it a bit before I actually take the plunge and do it as I am not really sure how to 🙂

Pattern: Part 1Part 2Part 3
Fabric: 40ct Linen – not labeled from my stash
Thread: 1 strand of Belle Soie silk in Collard Greens
Buttons and charm: from my stash

I had a lot of fun stitching this, and my girls loved helping me picking out just the right buttons to put on it. The buttons are charted to be stitched, but I really like to play around with stuff like that. Also where the scissor charm is, your are supposed to stitch your initial, but since I had that charm in my stash I thought it would look good there.

Oh it feels wonderful to finally have a finish! Now I am going to finish my Little Women Series since there is sooooo little left to stitch on them!
