Mime with Balloon is a Something Special kit by Candamar Designs. This has been a UFO for a long, long, long time. It was given to me as a gift from my brother wayyyy back when I first started stitching. The copyright on the chart is 1987, so I'm sure it was around that time when I started it. Over the years, it got buried in my stash never to see light of day until 2006 when I found it again. I decided I really should finish it. So here it is, almost 2 years later... FINISHED! Woo Hoo!! (Can you tell I'm thrilled?)
Designer: Candamar Designs
Started: 1987 Finished: 2008
Fabric: 14ct white aida
I learned a new stitch with the completion of this project. The Bullion Knot was used to create a dimensional rose. It was a little tricky at first, but once I got the hang of it, it wasn't too bad.
Now... What to do with it?
