FINISHED!

I can barely keep my eyes open but I couldn't go to bed before sharing my latest finish with you!



A Child's Guardian
by
La D Da








On this last picture you can see that I have stitched my birth year in it.  I guess after I am gone someone will have to put the year of my death there!  You may also have noticed that I put just a smidge of color in this piece by making the center of the three designs a muted pink color.  It's DMC 223.  I laid two colors out and that was the one that Masterchief liked so that was the one I used, of course!  

I really enjoy stitching designs by La D Da.  I like her style. 
After I finished I dabbed it all over with a tea bag and also used some of that stuff called Distress It.  I bought it a couple years ago at a stitch shop.  I've used it a few times and I like it.  

I need to get to bed before I start to make no sense.  Masterchief usually proof reads my posts before I hit PUBLISH but he went to bed an hour and a half ago.  If there are any typos I know you will understand.  :^)

Goodnight my friends.  Thank you for sharing in this finish with me.  
In the morning.....STASH DIVING!!  
WHhhheeeeeeee!!!!!

What a wonderful finish! I love your changes. I also purchased Distress It but ,unlike you, I am afraid to try it. I guess I will just have to dive in and do it.

Hi Peggy Lee, Oh, I wonder if I can buy Distress in Australia? I will have to look out for it. Lovely finish - I hope that you did a tango when you were done. I have added several of La D Da's designs to my wishlist once I saw this one on your blog.

Just beautiful and I hope it's many, many years from now before they "finish" the dates. I just discovered La D Da this year and have already added several of hers to my stash but this maybe a must have now as well.
