Nameplate: Samara

I have my first finish of 2013! It's only a small finish, took me about a day, but it was enjoyable to work on nonetheless. :)

Thursday I went to my friend Sheldon's place, and we can spend hours just talking. I find that to be a great time to get some stitching done, but most of my patterns are on the computer! I lack a printer, and only have a few pattern books, so I was at a loss to what I would work on. I have my girlfriend's stocking to think about, and as I was puzzling over what to do, she suggested I make a nameplate that she could hang on the door.

Well! I have plenty of fonts in my books, so planning away I did!

As I said, very simple! The camera ruined the moon's colour, which is actually a very pretty TEAL. She suggested the green for the stars, and I chose the sky blue because it appealed to me. The lettering I found in a cross stitch magazine, while the moon and stars were from a cross stitch book.

I'm still not sure what exactly I think of this. I like it, but then at the same time, I'm not very happy with it. The only opinion that truly matters is hers, right?

Thus far, my IHSW has kicked off to a great start! I won't be stitching Saturday since my girlfriend and I will be playing Dance Dance Revolution all night, but Sunday should be full of stitchy goodness! Have a wonderful IHSW everyone!

  3. The green stars are just to the point. I think your friend was right. Hope to see something new from your works, though you haven't been here for a long time. Have a splendid year!
