Stoney Creek Finish

Sat up last night, not wanting to stop stitching.  Back side was hurting, so shut everything down for the night.  Glanced up at the clock and it was 2 a.m.!

Started stitching around noon today with only less than 50 or so stitches to put in.  Wanted a finish today.

It's done.  Hands on clock has been stitched.  Buttons have been attached.

Will mount, lace and frame myself.  Plan to hang in my living room with my other three Stoney Creek Pattern of the Month finishes.  This makes the fourth one that I've completed.

Now to put threads away, bag the finished piece to take to LNS, and enjoy the rest of the evening with Leah.

This series of charts is available for a giveaway.  Will mail to anywhere.  Charts only.  Will giveaway as a set.  If interested, use contact form and email me.  Name will be drawn on July 24th.  Update - name has been drawn, charts were packaged and sent 07/26.  Thank you to all that entered my giveaway.  Next giveaway will be for the Dutch Treat Design chart - once done with stitching that design, will host a giveaway.  

Next up to finish is the Dutch Treat Design - They Followed the Star.  

It's July, the year is half over.  I want to complete the Dutch Treat Design, The Silver Lining - Ramblin' Rose and finish up all 14 JBW Design Christmas Trees into ornaments.  Three goals.  Five months.  Might be able to meet those goals.  

County fairs started in two counties today.  Third one starts tomorrow.  Plan to visit one, maybe two tomorrow, depending on the weather.  Hope the weather is decent as in cool temperatures.  Between posting my first post of this finish and this update, it stormed here.  Cooled things off, lawns and flowers needed it.
