August

I know I have not been posting for a while, but that is because I’m working on this little piece and wanted to get it done as soon as possible!! Why the rush? Well, because I’m making this a giveaway to celebrate my very first blogoversary!!!

IMG_0840

Pattern: Shepherd’s Bush “August”
Thread: DMC & WDW cotton floss
Fabric: 28ct Zweigart Quaker in Cream
Pinkeep Size: 3” x 4.5”
Finishing Date: 08-14-2009

Can you believe it’s almost one year since my very first post? Not only that, it’s also one year since I first started to cross stitch!! I have met so many wonderful people through cross stitch and blogging, and I just want to say thank you for all your friendship and support!!!

I chose this SB design and finished it as a pinkeep to mark this very special month. I love all the colors and details, and the meaning of August being the month of celebrating for your fruits of labor, just like blogging and cross stitching!!! I had a lot of fun making this, and hope you all will like it, too!!
