Not Completely Finished

I finished stitching the last Stacy Nash piece that was a project at A Primitive Gathering that was hosted by The Attic Needlework in January. The color of the fabric isn't true here - it's a cool bluey green. Quite lovely. I'm hoping to completely finish it at the end of the month with my DF Teresa. This project will be aged with walnut stain and will be assembled into a sewing book.

I'm off on another work trip tomorrow morning and will return on Thursday. I have yet to finish packing. I'm going to try driving this time so I might take my personal computer so I can keep up with my blog reading. If not, I'll catch up with your posts when I return. Happy Stitches and Happy Valentines Day!

Very nice finish! I'm looking forward to seeing it all finished into a sewing book. So cool! You'll have to report on your experiences with walnut dye. Hope your business trip goes well!

You do such beautiful work! I like the blue green background. What a nice choice.

Pat said...

Have a safe trip! Hope you might be able to "visit" us in Blogland while you are gone. I love your stitchery and the background fabric is nowhere blue/green on my computers, so it's a good thing you mentioned that!

Barb said...

Littlebit said...

Such a beautiful finish, Jackie..I can't wait to see it "aged" and made into a sewing book! That's going to be fantastic.

Oh oh, so you're going to age it. It reminds me of a strawberry ... Guess that has nothing to do with the actual agind ;o)

I just found your blog and was so surprised to find that you are a blogging friend of my quilting buddy Pat! She told me she had met up with you on her trip. What a coincidence. We tend to follow different blogs and it is so nice that I found yours on my own!

TeresaB said...

Ack! You finished and I've still got stitching on mine to do! Must get going on it and stop knitting on the stupid scarf I picked up for some reason.

Seriously, it looks great! Hope you're having a great trip.

A lovely finish, Jackie! I'm looking forward to seeing this one completed.

Drive safe!

Kathy Ellen said...

Lovely piece by Stacy Nash! The walnut stain finish will be very interesting to see how it creates a more "aged" look. Can't wait to see your finished sewing book!

Micki said...

What a gorgeous finish Jackie. Hope you are getting used to your travelling. I am sure that it is exciting!
