Looking at the comments on yesterday's entry, I saw one from "teresa." Now, I know a couple Teresas in the realm of stitching/blogging/bulletin boards, so I didn't think too much of it.....until I clicked on her name and found myself on TW's blog!! Wow, comments from the designer!!! I feel so honored. *grin*
I spent most of the weekend working on a piece just for me. I know I SHOULD work on the other wedding piece (one which I know will be appreciated, as I had input from the groom's mother before starting it), but after the disappointment of the intended beachy gift, I decided to indulge myself. Since Karen of Black Swan Designs was kind enough to send me a copy of her "Fairy and the Swan" water globe freebie, I worked on that. So pretty!
I used beads instead of metallic thread for the gold sparklies inside the globe. The fabric is a Silkweaver solo - if I'd planned ahead better, I might have been able to cut the fabric and have decent-sized piece left for another small design. Oh well.
Finally, here's the beach piece in all it's splendor. It is less than 5 inches square, so definitely something that could be finished in a subtle manner! The fabric is PTP's "Glory" - the recommended fabric, but in 28-ct. instead of 18. All the flosses are changed (most of them are Six-Strand Sweets). I won't count it as a finish yet, as I will add the date and the flip-flop charms that I have...just not the way I'd originally planned. And because it is no longer a wedding gift, it has moved to the bottom of the priority pile.
