An Unfinished Finish

A Crazy January Challenge finish that I finished two weeks ago.

This is a freebie design from Queenstown Sampler Designs that Barbara gave out two years ago at Loudoun Sampler Guild meeting. 

I added this to the CJC because it's small and fast and even then it took me 10 months to finally get around to finishing it. Most of this project was stitched somewhere other than at home. I used it as a take-along. 

The fabric is hand-dyed named Peacock, but I don't know the manufacturer. It was a ornament cut that I bought at the Thistle Needleworks in Glastonbury on one of my trips through Connecticut that I used to do twice a year bringing and returning daughter from college. 

The thread is Silk n Colours "Granite." A total misnomer as I am a Granite State Girl and that's not a good representation of any granite I've ever seen!

Love how it came out. I've got plans for the finishing. Who knows? Maybe today?

Pretty! I have to smile at your thoughts on the color granite - made me think of the home improvement shows and how very many colors of granite I've seen. This one must be in someone's house!

Not granite! But pretty.
