~ PLEASE EXCUSE MY GUSHING! ~
Hi there! Yesterday was cold and blowing snow, so what better way to spend some time than stitching and finishing a prim ornie! Worked on Zweigart 18 ct. white aida, stuffed w/poly, jute hanger, wee rusted bell below and according to Stacy Nash's easy instructions. My first attempt at coffee staining w/paint brush and baking, repeating process til primly sweet and perfect. This prim stitcher is so very pleased with the end result that I am gushing with pride, even if it's not done on linen. You'll find this hanging off the knob of our wall lamp in our kitchen, I can't keep my eyes off it! Funny how we stitchers take such delight isn't it? Now that I have some confidence in this coffee staining process, it'll be fun~fun~fun to finish more like this:) Thanks ever so much Stacy for a SUPER prim design.
What do you all think? Thx for taking the time to share this satisfying finish with me and Sweet Stitchin....
PS ~ Did I mention about the GUSHING - LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
