My sweet friend, Linda, whose blog is Keeper of the Crowes, sent me a finish this week and I just couldn't wait to share it with you. She stitched "Be Ye Merry" and it's finished into a pinkeep, much like the original design, except she added ruching.
In one word.....G O R G E O U S......
And I love how she placed it in her new lollipop handled carrier that she just found this past Autumn. So pretty with the greenery.
I found it a real coincidence, since I just happen to be stitching this same design this very week. I've found myself with a bit of down time between projects and I thought I'd try and make a few finished pieces to sell in my Etsy shop this month.
I use to love doing that when I belonged to the "To Dwell in Primitive Thymes" online group and I miss it sometimes. Here's what I have so far.....
Usually, when I stitch a design again, I like to mix it up a bit. It gives me a chance at a kind of "WHAT IF"........ I plan to finish this differently too.
I used overdyed floss this time around. Forest Glade, Lancaster Red and Heirloom Gold. My good friend, Pat stitched her version with these colors and I loved it so much I decided to use her choices for this. I love how it looks on this dark WDW Cocoa linen too.

Well, a big thank you Linda for stitching and sharing your beautiful piece with me.
I'll keep you posted with my stitching and finishing progress.
Have a wonderful week my friends!
