Hey Everyone; Hope you all are doin' well.
I have another finish to show off....
Designed by me using DMC threads and Mill Hill beads on 28 count white Monaco from Charles Craft and a rose embellishment. The stitches used are cross stitch, back stitch, satin stitch and a couple of Rhodes Hearts. The trim is hand made from DMC threads. I got a little large on the "F" but noticed it to late to do anything about it so it stays.
The back is a cotton moire with an 1/8" satin ribbon run through the back for tying onto baskets or wreaths.
I'll start stitchin' March soon after I make some more tweaks to the chart.
"January & February"
Now on to the "Stashin' " part.
I like to be frugal when it comes to my craft, sewing and needlework supplies, I like to use coupons, shop sales and shop thrift stores to cut down on the costs and have found tons of bargains doing so, but my recent order through Amazon.com was my best deal yet.
You see, I take surveys using sites like I-Say, My Survey, Swagbucks and Pinecone and doing so lets me earn points that I turn in for Amazon gift cards. Between the hubs and I we have bought over $200 dollars worth of stuff with no out of pocket costs.
This is what I got yesterday ....
The Complete Serger Handbook $4.48
Bias Tape maker kit $12.29 came with 4 bias tape makers, sewing foot and awl.
Kreinik Custom Corder $15.30
Total = $32.07
Cost to me $0.00 because of Amazon gift cards.
Well that's it for today, so until next post .......
Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
