Finished a Lizzie Kate Christmas Project


This was a really fun project to stitch. It was a travel project, so I worked on it at lunch time at work as well as at a stitching get together a couple of weeks ago. I did make one mistake - the bottom border is off one row. It sould have been even with the last little spot where things stick out on the side borders. I realized it when I got all the way across, but I didn't want to rip it out. First off, I didn't think it would REALLY make a difference (in fact it gave me room to put my name and the year - otherwise there would have only been one row in between the cardinal block and the bottom border), but more importantly, the red is a Crescent Colors red, and it's not colorfast. I was afraid if I took it out I would leave red color where I frogged. So I left it - and I'm okay with that!

Now I'm working on another Lizzie Kate - it's a Halloween design that says "Velcome" and has Frankenstein, Dracula and (I think) a ghost.....I'm not looking at it, so I'm not sure! LOL

Thanks for checking out my blog!

Pretty finish. Love the cheerful colors. I think it's great that because of the mistake, you get to include your name and year.

Hugs,

I didn't even notice. I would be afraid of that red leaving a mark also. Is it possible to soak it in vinegar to set the colors? That's the one thing that bothers me about the speciality threads. I've just started collecting them tyo stitch with. I wonder if one of thse color catchers (for the laundry) would catch the colors when its soaking to get any hand oils out before framing? Sandy in WA
