Violets to Greet You

I finished it!!! And isn't it beautiful. I love the fabric. I received this fabric as part of my Surprise Me package from the Silkweaver Fabric of the Month Club. The fabric looks like it was custom for this Paula Vaughan piece. I love the very impressionist look that the piece has on the fabric.

I have several other projects to finish, but I am hoping to start a couple of new projects this month. Last week, Sharon and I stopped by Shakespeare's Peddler after work. I picked up the Raise the Roof Design Santa Clothes and the specialty thread for it. I have a perfect piece from a different Silkweaver FOTM club package for that one. Also, I got the Sleepy Hollow piece by The Cross-Eyed Cricket. And, yes, I have the perfect piece of fabric from Silkweaver. Can't wait to start on those.

Your Violets piece is gorgeous, as is the fabric, and the combination is lovely. How do you plan to finish it?

I like your Study Hard piece below. This was the first thing I ever stitched on linen so it holds a special place in my heart.

Jen, your stitching is gorgeous and the fabric just perfect! I need to build a better fabric stash :-).
RE: Floss Caddy tutorial you asked about...No, I do not have one. I made it up as I went along. The 1st of the year I will try to make some tutorials for finishing.
If you ever need help on making one, just email me.
