Another Finish and Other Stuff

Sunday I finished Glitter Gulch's A House Without Books. I really enjoyed this stitch. Mainly because I totally agree with the sentiment behind it. :)

A House Without Books
Glitter Gulch
Stitched on 28ct Antique White
using recommended DMC threads

I'm not sure how I am going to finish this piece yet. The pattern included three large buttons to use in the finishing. They recommended finishing it as a bell pull. For now, it is going in my finishes pile until I decide what to do with it.

I picked up the latest copy of Just Cross Stitch and found a band sampler I actually like. I was hoping to show you a picture of it, but JCS doesn't have their newest issue online yet. It is the one on the cover. I've never been one for band samplers, but for some reason this one just spoke out to me. Of course I'm probably going to play with the colors a little bit. LOL Right now, the colors are just a bit too "candy" for me. I'm thinking of using blues, greens, and purples in it. Love that combination! I'll probably do it on one of the pieces I've already got dyed. I'm thinking of doing it on one of the dark purple pieces.

Nice finish.

Mine is sitting in my "to be finished" pile. :)

Congrats on the finish...very nice and I too agree with the saying. It would make a nice flat fold if you don't want to make it into a bell pull.

Your finishes look great and I love the purple-y-ness you described for the band sampler! YOu can join my Year of the Sampler SAL!

Looks great. What about making it into a pillow?

What about finishing it into a bookmark. Don't know for its actual size, but maybe it will fit .. ? Or a "hanging-thingy" for a the handle of a bookcase. Or, framed for hanging beside a bookshelf. Or ... =)
I am sure you will find the suiting finish for this nice piece of work. :)
