Second Finish

Second finish of 2017! This one's a cutie, too. It's called Better Not Pout by Shepherd's Bush and I bought it as a kit ages ago.


The Shepherd's Bush kit was really nice: great directions for the specialty stitches, more than enough threads to finish, and a generously sized piece of linen. And those threads! Au Ver a Soie silks and a yummy Wildflowers. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.


The specialty stitches were fun to do for the most part, although the hemstitch gave me fits. I adore the color changes in that Wildflowers thread. It really sets off the other colors of the silks.  And just look how cute that little house is with its checkerboard side and its tiny windows! That moon charm is just adorable too.



Two little pieces done so far this year. Maybe my next finish will be something larger!
