Dyeing to Stitch challenge......

..Good Saturday morning friends...
Wow.... Where is the time going????.... Glorious spring....
Who doesn't love a challenge?? I know I'm always intrigued... I joined the 2013 Ladies Prim Society that the cross-stitch shop Dyeing to Stitch is hosting this year... A amazing group of ladies are organizing the club.... Not only do they own the Dyeing to Stitch brick and mortar shop in Virginia, but they also own R&R linens..... Win~win....
Threadwork Primitives designed the first kit of the year.... It is gorgeous.....Here is mine stitched.... And further distressed..
Untitled.....All the finishing supplies are included... Won't you join us???

Included in the kit was a small design that was to be stitched and finished as the challenge.... I welcomed the challenge and recently was notified that I had won!!!!! Yeah.....

... I used Country Mocha 25 ct Lugana because I wanted very tiny stitches for this fob.... And I incorporated a feather stitch border using the included hand dyed Mountain Mist by GAST...
image
A goodie basket from Dyeing to Stitch was the winnings... Again, Win~Win..!
image
Just look..... The brand new Threadwork Primitives design, Down Virginia Way, hand dyed Rick racks, 40 ct hand dyed R&R reproduction linen and fantastic stitchers Bees Wax... I'm thrilled!!!!
...Thank you, Dyeing to Stitch, for this recognition..... And the most generous basket of goodies....
Anyone want to take a guess of what I'll be stitching this weekend???.....
...Hoping everyone enjoys their weekend......
Blessings,
Faye
