First Strawberry Emery

When I saw this design in the July Issue of The Gift Of Stitching I knew I had to stitch it and try that finishing technique. I started and finished it last night and it is really easy and a lot of fun!

Strawberry Emery
Designed by Anita Diamond, from the July 2008 Issue of TGOS.
Fabric: Unmarked 28ct Gray linen from my stash
Thread: Needle Necessities #153
Black beads

When I saw the design I fell in love with it but I wanted to play around with colors of my own choise. When I was messing around with threads and fabric, this combination just jumped at me and I think it looks pretty good. A little dark and different. And I absolutely love the black ribbon I found yesterday while browsing for just the right ribbons for it.

I think I found a place yesterday that sells a tool simular to the one Becky bought for attaching eyelets. I really want to make floss ring tags so I need some sort of tool for it. I am going to drive up there today and see if they have what I am looking for.

New design.

Those of you who subscribe to The Gift Of Stitching Magazine, you might have seen a familiar name in the December Issue. I got featured as a designer again in this wonderful stitching magazine and it is such an honor to be published with the wonderful and talented designers that also got featured in the issue. Among them are Blue Ribbon Designs, Jo Mason of Dinky-Dyes, Debbie Draper Designs, Olde Willow Stitchery, Giulia Punti Antichi and many more.

Here is a picture of my design. I didn’t manage to take a picture of the finished needle roll before I mailed it off to Australia, but this is the picture that was in the magazine. I hope this gives you a general idea about how it looks. It was finished off with green and off-white ribbon on top and bottom.
