Summer Song Finished

I finished up Summer Song yesterday morning and headed to Joann's hoping to find some backing fabric to use for my pillow. I wanted something with sunflowers on a black background. The only thing I could find had a green background, and it really didn't look right. So I picked out the fabric the stitching is lying on top of - the color of the design is actually more orange than it appears in the photo - it's as orange as the color in the lettering. I'm still not completely satisfied so I may wait until fall, when sunflower material may be more available.

I find myself without a project now that this is done. I'm just not sure what I want to stitch - has that ever happened to you? I'm trying to use my stash rather than buy new charts (famous last words) but nothing is really appealing to me. I guess I better get back to stash diving and pick something out before I go into stitching withdrawal!

I love your finish, it's very sweet.

I also have trouble picking out the next thing to stitch. Too much choice I guess!

Your finish is cute.
Pick out 5 things you really like.
Close your eyes and pick one, then start that one! lol

I never have any problems finding something to stitch.
I'm with you on stitching from the stash bin

A great finish. I like the backing finish. Hope you find something new to stitch.

Very cute finish, Michele! I'm the same way when a finish ends--I'm kind of at lose ends. I think that is because I'm a one-project-at-a-time stitcher and have a hard time deciding what to do next... Hope something calls your name very loudly :)

An adorable finish Michele. So sweet.

I hope you decide on what to stitch next. I have a hard time picking something. I think that means I have too much!

Summer Song is lovely - I try to avoid darker backgrounds. I may have to change my mind, seeing how lovely yours turned out!

Happy Spring
