A Finish!












Bent Creek Snappers
on 32 ct Platinum linen, using DMC, GAST and WDW thread.

Started on January 1st, 2006 ~ Finished on November 18, 2006


Whew, a larger finish for me! I'm very happy with the way this turned out. I used two sets of buttons from Dress It Up sets, hearts around the border and teeny tiny buttons in the blocks themselves, instead of using the snaps that came with the patterns. These are really sweet and I will have to use them again.

And I got my parcel mailed out for the Prairie Schooler board ornament exchange. I took a scan of the ornament also and as soon as the recipient receives it, I'll post it.

I'm still looking for 4 more people for my Pay it Forwards. I'm afraid I joined in this too late and everyone has already signed on. Vonna has suggested a sideways swap, so even though you have already signed on with someone, feel free to join mine also!

This is a big huge wonderful project, Wendy!
I'm way behind in my blog reading but I think it's still time to congratulate your lovely daughter (and her parents who sure do have something to do with it) for her success!
Take care!

This is one of the next ones I'll stitch after my Mermaids are done. I love how you put "time flies" on there. I may have to borrow that idea :) You did a really nice job on this!
