A quick finish...


Isn't this a cute little project? I decided I wanted to do something that I could complete very quickly and use some of my new fabric while doing it. I had downloaded a bunch of Erica Michael's freebies off Rainbow Gallery web page last summer. I wanted to stitch the month charts and use them to make magnets for my refrigerator to hold a custom calendar with our families activities. So, I decided to start in the middle of the year and stitch July, since I can use it in a few weeks. The charts use Rainbow Gallery threads, which I do not have, so I changed it using the colors I had on hand. I stitched it on a piece of Silkweaver Dusty Blue linen (32 ct). I just received this piece last week in my Surprise Me! Fabric of the Month package. I love the fabric. It was very easy to stitch on and very soft.



I finished the piece as a magnet, backing it with some of the fabric I bought last week. It was really easy, but you can see that I need a little more practice to make it look perfect. This was a really fun project and I am really excited about completing the whole set.
