I have two new cross stitch finishes. Well I say two but they came from one pattern. It's the Cancer Awareness Blackwork By Kristine Herber. I did the top portion on one piece of fabric and the bottom on another. Now I am trying to finish it into a biscornu. It is more difficult than I thought it would be because of very little edge to this fabric. If I had count the piece I might have picked a larger piece of fabric but I was trying to use a scrap of fabric.
I chose to stitch the first half with DMC Variations 4180 in honor of my Mom and Aunt
Sissy surviving breast cancer. The bottom half "Hope" side I used Waterlilies Parfait 023 by Caron, it is an over dyed floss. I chose because it has yellow and lavender, these colors represent Support Our Troops and General Cancer. I don't know if brain tumors have a color but I have decided to me it will be blue, so that and the lavender and blue are in honor of my DH.
Fortune cookie for today: "Others are deeply moved by your presence."
I hope that you are having a wonderful day.
