~ 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....

Tootles, Sue

  3. It came out great. I'm going to have to try that paintbrush method. I tried Vonna's tea and coffee dyeing this morning and was pleased with the results, but I think a paint brush would add a little bit more to it!
