Lazy Daisy Crazy

Finally a finish! Here is Strawberry Garden from Blackbird Designs. I probably started this the year it came out in 2006 and it was a third finished and languished in my UFO pile until recently.
I have enjoyed the colors in this and the specialty stitches. I think that I will be happy if I don't do another lazy daisy for awhile. I enjoyed the blanket stitch centers in the center of the blue flowers.

The basket was just alternating strait stitches.

Now the chart will be mailed off to a blogging friend to stitch next. Maybe it will become one of those traveling charts.
I need to pack it in for the night. I am going to a program at MESDA tomorrow about George Washington. I will take some pictures of Old Salem to share.

Sweet Dreams!

Glad you finished it! I love the colors. It's really a cute piece. How are you going to finish it? Framed, or as a pillow, or what?

Have fun at Old Salem tomorrow. We're debating a drive to the beach.

Big congratulations, Chris, what an accomplishment! Your Strawberry Garden is just gorgeous. It is on my to-do list too, so now I am even more excited about spending some time stitching it. The colors are soooo pretty!
Are you going to frame it or finish it any other way?
