Floss Tube and Finishes

Not only do I love to watch Floss Tube, read blogs, be a working part of Stitching Pirates....I now have my own Floss Tube videos!  It's so incredibly fun.  

I think the most fun is trying to find the best way to take video of my floss tube (I'm lying so hard right now)....trial and error and now I think I have found the way (telling the truth now).  The second video has audio problems...I said trial and error folks!

I have been a busy, busy stitcher since the new year, so here goes:


First biscornu of the year for the first place prize box of goodies on the Finish the WIP 2017 Contest over at Stitching Pirates.  I tried to match the colors on the biscornu to the box so it matched.  Just a box of goodies that any stitcher could easily fit in a suitcase or backpack for traveling.  I'm betting you could fit a small travel project in there.  


I'm guessing that is a $60 prize right there and that doesn't even count the adorable biscornu I made.  I don't know about you but I love making prizes.

I've been working really hard to get my promised 8 squares for Rainbows for Peace and Comfort group finished so they can be washed, ironed and sent to Timothy and turned in to quilts.  Rainbow Butterfly was created by Climbing Goat Designs.



Love was created by Miss Red and I am so grateful she has designed several patterns and donated them to our group for this lovely concept.  She is the one who created Peace which were the two doves I had done previously with the names of two of the fallen.



The most recent finish is Love Has No Limits by Lily Lyon.  I think this one was done specifically for the group but if I find out differently I will update that information.  I absolutely LOVE this pattern.  The heart was supposed to be all red, but I made it rainbow because you cannot have too many rainbows....or glitter...rainbows and glitter...seriously NEVER ENOUGH.


A small little finish for the January NFSAL that Magical created I will make a lovely card out of for someone special.  It's lovely blues and I really like how it came out.


I also finished the first section of the Beyond The Square Crochet Motifs by Edie Eckman which was cirlces.  I'm going to start the second section on February 1st.  


Aren't they soooooo pretty??!!  One per day.  I also have the other two books that came after this book by Edie Eckman and I will be doing those as well.  They are so fun and satisfying.  Still haven't figured out what to do with them once I've done them all.  I'm at 28 right now.  By the time I do them all I should have a little over 200. 

There you have it my sweet, sweet readers!  If you have a floss tube PLEASE share the link down below so I can watch and stitch.  I really am getting quite a bit done watching your videos.

Until next time.....KEEP ON STITCHIN'!!
