First finish for 2007!

Here goes my first finish for 2007 … this is “Spring Basket” by Beverley McNully from an Inspirations magazine. I started it last night, but didn’t get very far before I hit the hay for the night. To say I detest doing French knots is an understatement, but they were pretty simple this time using perle cotton on canvas. It just has to be turned into a pincushion during a future ‘finishing session’. Seeing as I don’t have any 18″ stretcher bars yet, I can’t start my Laura J Perin canvaswork design, so this fit in nicely into the canvaswork slot in my rotation in the meantime ๐Ÿ˜€

Now I’m off to put a few more stitches into my focus piece, Egyptian Garden. I had a shock earlier, though, when my phone line died again … this time it was just offline for about an hour, but if I go missing all of a sudden, that’s why!

  1. I’ve been so busy trying to decide what to start on New Years Day, it never occured to me to pick something to finish on New Years Day! LOL… I bet I can find something that I can finish today. The first thing that comes to mind is my oldest UFO.

  2. OMG you must have the patience of a saint to do all of those french knots!! Turned out fabulous though. Congrats on your first finish in 2007. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. You have got to be kidding, Anne! A new start finished already?!! Well, blow me down, lol!

    It’s a great design! Hope you won’t have nightmares about french knots. ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Nice work, Anne! It’s beautiful and I can’t wait to see it made up as a pincushion. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy New Year, my friend!
