Blessed Be is finished

I used Katrina's suggestion and found the little flower button on the back of my camera, so was able to do this closeup of my finish of Blessed Be. I think it looks a little better than earlier pictures. Thank you Katrina! Now all I need to do is to tackle finishing it. I'm happy with the way it turned out.

Kathy and Mindi, your input on soaking floss is much appreciated - I think you both make a lot of sense and I will go with being careful and not soaking the floss beforehand. The colors for Hope Perches are very pretty and I wouldn't want to lose any of their vividness. I'll just make sure not to drink my coffee anywhere near my stitching!

Great job!

Received this pattern, fabric and floss to do it at the stitch retreat I attended over the weekend. I love the design. They had finished theirs as a easel-backed flat. I probably will make mine into a little pillow or frame it.

The idea of keeping your coffee away from your stitching is a good idea. I have seen several projects ruined by spilled drinks.
