Remember this mystery project? It's finished and it has safely arrived at its new home! Are you curious what it is? Or did you already recognize it?
It's an older Bent Creek design in their Zippie series, which I have long had in my stash. I am trying to stitch more from my stash (though I admit I have been tempted lately by some new designs, too). I finished it as a cushion and am pleased with how it turned out.
I was afraid I was too rusty to do the finishing and was afraid it would turn out an odd shape, but it mostly came back to me (though my sewing machine does still scare me a little--I prefer to do as much finishing by hand as I can). It was the perfect design to get my feet wet with once again in stitching and finishing.
Bent Creek has some really sweet designs and I think they must have been one of the very first cross stitch designers that I ever bought and stitched! I'll be dipping into my stash bin again looking for more of these little kits to work on, I think.
