A New Finish!

Hiya Friends!

Hope you are all doing really well. I am doing pretty good. Both stitching and sewing have been very slow in happening, as my glasses have disappeared and have yet to reappear for about a month now. It's very frustrating. Without my glasses, my options are my prescription sunglasses, and of course even with my stitching light, stitching with sunglasses is not easy. The other option is my old pair of contacts. And although they are better for seeing than my sunglasses, there's a reason why I choose to no longer wear them. My eyes tend to dry out really bad with them, especially now with our ceiling fan going 24/7 bcuz of the heat. But I was able to get this piece finished, an ATC, a little bit at a time. And I am really happy with out it turned out!

The theme for this one was oriental. I had the hardest time finding a pattern for this theme. And after going through several of my stitching pattern books, I finally came across this one. And I loved it from the moment I saw it! I hope the recipient loves it just as much!

Here it is ...


The Kanji symbol means beauty. And I just love the kimono.

The next theme I'm working on is the letter C. It's nearly finished. Just have a bit more backstitching to do. Then I'll start on the next 2 themes, which are the letter N and FIFA, either soccer or tennis. The FIFA one, I'm not sure if I'm going to go with soccer or tennis. I found a cute tennis pattern. And the only one I've really found for soccer is just a plain old soccer ball. And I'm not sure I want to do just a plain old soccer ball. But we shall see.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!

Happy Stitching!

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥
