Ladies Prim Society

Every time I saw the projects from last year's Ladies Prim Society I regretted not signing up.  So I got on board right away this year.  If you are interested in getting involved with this, be sure to go to Dyeing To Stitch:
http://dyeing2stitch.com/subpage.php?page=primsociety
 or give them a call (757-366-8740)You'll receive a kitted project (between $35 and $40) from Threadwork Primitives or Blackbird Designs about every 8 to 10 weeks (got my first one early last week).  What's not to like from these two designers!

As a chronic non-finisher, I'm so pleased with myself for not putting the completed stitching away to finish later.  (I have a lot of "finish later" projects!) 
Instead of finishing the edge with a closed blanket stitch (suggested finish), I used some of that vintage lace my mother gave me . . . I'm going to be heartbroken when all of that lace is gone!
Here's the back . . . I added my initials.  Should have moved the design down a bit . . . oh well.
I added a bit to the inside to make it more functional for me.   I had these cute little flower thread rings (from Kelmscott Designs) that I stitched on.  I was a little afraid to use the rusty safety pin included in the kit as the rust was rubbing off and I didn't want to soil anything.  I used a little black safety pin I had and a couple of yellow plastic head pins that I dyed with Rite Tan dye to make them look old.

Thank you Nan for such a wonderful design . . . LOVE IT ! ! !

Now I should go get my other "non-finished" projects and feel this good about finishing them!!!!!!!

GO FINISH SOMETHING TODAY
You'll be happy you did!

  3. Wow, Bonny, this is gorgeous! Are you sure you're not a finisher, because I really think you are. BTW, thank you for not crocheting the trim on this one. (makes the rest of us look lame) LOL :o)

    1. I actually did think about crocheting the trim since some of the threads were WDW and would have been long enough. Thank goodness I thought about the lace instead . . . although there could be some more crochet trim in my future! ~*
