Well, this has been an interesting end of the week. Thursday morning I fell out front of the house and banged myself up pretty bad. In fact, my knee is still swollen and stiff, giving me a bit of difficulty. Thankfully it is responding to ice and medicine, just slowly. In the meantime, I’d like to share another Fully Finished Object (FFO).
If you’ve been following my blog or Instagram feed for a while, you will have picked on the fact that I am stitching my way through Year of Celebrations published by Cross Stitch & Needlework Magazine and designed by Cathy Habermas. So far I have stitched February through September. Since I am more than halfway done the series I decided to start finishing them.
My plan from the first time I saw the series was always to finish each motif individually and display them interchangeably each month. Each motif, when stitched on 14 count Aida, measures 4 inches by 4 inches, which makes them the perfect size for wrapping around a 4 inch canvas square. That’s exactly what I did.
Since the canvas squares come in packs of two, I finished February and March together. For the backing I used scrapbook paper in a coordinating theme. The finished pieces rest nicely in a small easel and will be displayed on my seasonal decor shelf.
Here are a few pictures of the process:
They turned out exactly how I imagined them. That’s all for now I hope you have a great week and thanks for taking the time to read my post.
