New Finish!


I have another finish. This is the Glory Bee Coffee for Gossip. I used most of the recommended threads except for one. I did not like the color so I used Purple Iris from Gentle Arts for the cups and the word "gossip". The picture came out a bit blurry for some reason. The material I used was Silkweaver's Summer Breeze on 28 count lugana. I love the material. It does remind me of a summer's sky. Now on to a Christmas ornament.

I almost forgot, I did finish one of my books in the book challenge. I read The Chocolate Bridal Bash by JoAnna Carl. It was a good mystery but kind of predictable at couple of places. There are a couple tidbits from the author about chocolate and even a recipe for a chocolate cake. Looks really good but it is a double recipe. I might try it around the holidays, since there lots that happens at that time of the year. A thought came in my head, maybe I can make some cupcakes out of the batter too.

Happy Stitching everyone!
