Default A Finish and A Start!

I took Pat's advice and pulled out a UFO near completion while waiting
for the fabric I had ordered.

(can someone help Pat, I think she's fainted from the shock)

I managed to get all of the millions (well thousands anyway) of beads
into Cinderella (Mirabilia) on Friday. 4 days of beading...my eyes
were bugging out! lol

You can see her he

My long awaited reward was starting Bagatelle!

I'd found some fabric locally, at a great price, so I was pretty
thrilled to be able to start Bags immediately!

I'm being "good" that is two finishes to the one start! rofl

I've finished 4 bookmarks - each case, half my design, half a borrow from a
bought chart... 3 for teachers, 1 for a good friend's birthday! Now to come
up with a brilliant idea for the retiring vice principal...

She's beautiful. Doesn't it feel good to finish something. Now if your
ambition would only rub off on me !!

That is absolutely gorgeous Caryn - a lot of work but so worth it. Is there
some place one could see Bagatelle?

Ahhh - lovely.

I've recently finished a "Cross-eyed Cricket" Baby sampler (Gabrielle's
Cygnet) where I switched the fabric from the mauve to "Crossed-Wings"
overdyed "Storm" (mottled blue and white) and changed the purple and
mauve tones to blues; and Teresa Wentler's woolcross cushion (Flowers).

I've started Jeannette Douglas' "Take Time to Stitch" (I can carry it on
my commute to work), and am going to get back to a couple of UFOs -
Flower Power, Moira Blackburn's "Three Things" before I start anything
(else) new.

Thanks!

She's on 32 ct natural linen, rather than the blue/grey one Nora
recommended.

No affliation with this shop, this is just a good picture of the
design!

I saw the designer's model at my LNS in Alexandria, VA. Just gorgeous!
I didn't want to use blue fabric, so am going with mulberry instead.

Oh my oh my - is that drop dead gorgeous or what? In what century do you
think you'll have that one done? :-) I like your choice of mulberry too -
one of my favourite colours.

I've found that the monotone ones go a lot faster than the TW's do. I
finished Long Dog's St Sylvestre, which is about 1/3 (maybe) the size
of Bagatelle in about 4 mos.

Can't say that I'll finish Bagatelle this year..probably not....but I'm
gonna see what happens!

If nothing else, the samplers are a good thing to alternate with the
TW's, Mirabilas and Silver Lining designs also in my current rotation!
