Finally a little finish!

It's been a long time coming, but I've finally got around to actually having a finished finish!  I wasn't going to blog about this one just yet, as I have a couple of other Halloween pieces stitched, and was going to wait until they were also finish finished and then show them altogether.  I'm so excited to have at last got around to making something though that I just couldn't wait to blog about it...lol! 

This is The Prairie Schooler Night Owl from the Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue 2008.  Late for Halloween I know, but at least in plenty of time for Halloween this year...lol.  This one has been hanging around for so long waiting to be made up.  I made a start on the border back in 2008 and then didn't complete the stitching until a couple of years ago.  I eventually decided to make it into a pinkeep last year hoping to have it finished in time for Halloween, which didn't happen because I didn't have enough of the DMC 3776 to make the twisted cord and didn't know where I could buy some here in Dubai.  Last week I made the cord, and yesterday finally stitched it to the pinkeep.  After all this time I can't remember which 32ct fabric I've stitched it on, but I do know that I use the listed DMC threads.


I love the backing fabric, it's a piece I've had for a long time and have used before on my Prairie Schooler Autumn Pinkeep.


It's taken a while, but I think I've at last found my stitching mojo - WOO HOO!  I really have missed it - I just hope I don't loose it again!  :o)
