This is my blog for Finished Projects.
To read about the stitching process and join in with the Blog Hops I organise come over to Serendipitous Stitching (link in side bar).
In the mean time I invite you to "Come Happy Dance with me"
Stitched on 32 count lemon yellow fabric, stitched over one.
I converted the charted GAST to DMC but the colours were rather muddy (unlike the original GAST) so I just made my own colours up instead! I used some nice 3000 greens for the lettering and a brighter red for the little trailer. I also changed the word peeps to cheep because we don't have peeps here (I understand they are a type of sweet?).
The fabric isn't striped, they show through from the mount, but it's a good effect I am pleased with.
This is how I mounted the picture for my scrapbook using a nice piece of (recycled) Easter Egg ribbon round the edge:
Close up of the bookmark, I used the leftover threads to make the tassel.
Gwen of Guava Gems left the 5000th comment on my blog. I wanted to send something suitable so I read through her blog and saw she was taking part in the Snooty Parrots SAL. I had this little parrot bookmark in my stash, a cover kit from Cross Stitcher magazine. I used their colours but changed the parrots around a little to make them more colourful. In the parcel I included a piece of this fabric, I couldn't find any with parrots on but this is very colourful. I also included a skein of Jodyri's Over The Rainbow thread which includes the same colours as the parrots and a Lucie Heaton booklet of Summer Stitching.
