If ever there's a morning

that needs coffee, it's gotta be Monday :) Seeing other stitchers pulling out their old WIPs has inspired me to get out one of my own. I abandoned this one last summer...


This time around, the stitching just glided along :)



Coffin Buzz
by Plum Street Samplers, freebie found here
fabric: misc "staci-dyed" linen remnant
fiber: WDW Mocha


You may know that I always celebrate a finish with a new start. Apparently finishing an old WIP merits 2 new starts, lol. More on that later ;)

Hope your week is off to a fabulous start! Sending you all a little Colorado Sunshine, Happy Monday!

Staci, I just love your latest finish. Of course, I love them all. I noticed that you said your fabric was "Staci-dyed" and I have read your tutorial, but I just was wondering something. After you coffee or tea-dye your fabrics and set the fabric with a warm iron, do you ever wash the fabric or do you leave it as is? Thanks.

Lei

Lenka said...

What a lovely finish and I like your Staci-dyed fabric very much. It has gorgeous shade :)

Kathy A. said...

Love your coffee themed freebie. That would make a perfect gift for my youngest sister. I went to the site but could not find the pattern HELP?

doris said...

I love this piece, and I have it in my stash of freebies. Now to stitch it!

diamondc said...

Staci: this is simply lovely, I have four wip and am itching to get to them, my only road block is my super big project.
However I did get all the beads on the Earthdancer.
Blackbird Designs are my very favs for stitching.
Stay safe.
Catherine

Kathy said...

Oww, what nice stitching. Isn't it nice to say "I finished a WIP"? And yes you should be able to have 2 new starts for finishing an old WIP. Maybe another pair of socks.
