Can You Find It For Me??

I was needing a new piece to work on. I am waiting for thread for my ALQ and I didn't feel in the mood to pick up any of my other WIPs. They are all BAPs and I just wasn't in the mood to stitch on something so large. So....I looked through my stash to find a weekend piece.

I finally found what I was looking for in a back issue of The Gift of Stitching. In the October 2006 issue is a piece called Sanity?? by Jessica Willis Burr of Six Strand Sweets. I've made pretty good headway on the piece. I wish I could show you a picture of what it should look like when finished, but I was unable to find one. :(

When finished, it will read... " Excuse Me... Have you seen my Sanity?? I lost it somewhere."

I changed the colors to make it my own of course. And to fit what I already had in my stash.

Excuse me is done in GAST Deep Sea. The backstitching is all done in DMC 336 and Sanity is done in DMC 52. The fabric is one that my mom dyed herself (I think). I know it was is a gift package she sent me a couple of years ago. The picture doesn't do the pretty green of it justice.

Love the fabric and thread colors. And if you find your sanity, let me know. I think mine is probably lost right along with it. :-)
