Challenge For a Finish - July

The Challenge for July was a monochrome piece - any design, any finish. I immediately knew exactly what I wanted to stitch and what finish to do, as it's a piece I've wanted to stitch as a gift for a certain someone for some time. This is the piece:


  • Design: Country Bunny
  • Designer: Jean Farish of Country Things
  • Fabric: 28ct white evenweave, unknown make
  • Threads: DMC 101 and Ecru
  • Finish: Floss Ring Tag


I finished the back with our initials and the year in the same DMC 101 thread and also added a charm:

It was completed in plenty of time to post off to Julie as part of her birthday gift, before we went away on our holiday, and I'm glad to say that she liked it. :0)

Am also glad to say that this was one July commitment that was completed in plenty of time for the deadline....... can't say the same about my Christmas ornie...... or the Christmas Wishes SAL, which I still haven't started. Oops! :0)

Thank you for all your lovely comments, they are greatly appreciated and do brighten up my day. Hope you all had an easy start to the week. :0)
