PIF #2

I received word that my second PIF was received. What's a PIF? How does it work? Check it out HERE.

I actually finished it on 8/28/08. For Lynn in TX:


Snow Poem Tree by Erynne
Time: 15.75 hrs to stitch, 2 hrs to finish
Fabric: 18ct white aida
Fibers: Anchor 1345, DMC 964
Embellishments: Handmade cording
(DMC Pearle 518), 1/8" ribbon, eyelets

Lynn really liked it! "I went to the mail box just now and there was a gift from Meari! It's that SNOWFLAKE POEM I posted this morning. There it was, all stitched up in ready to go on my wall. It is gorgeous! Meari's stitching is perfect, puts mine to shame. Every stitch perfectly placed. You can't appreciate the work until you hold it. I OWN AN ORIGINAL MEARI! Thank you, thank you. ~Lynn, smiling so broadly"

PIF #1 - Rene

Meari,
Both of your PIF projects are gorgeous - well done. I love that you used your new tool to make the holes, I am going to buy one of them the next time I have a 50% off coupon with Michaels as they want $49.99 for it here, so 1/2 price sounds awesome to me.

Great job Meari! Lucky Lynn :)

Barbara said...

Meari,
That is absolutely stunning and Lynn is SOOOOO lucky. I loved the colors you used and how you finished it. I'm stitching this chart for a SanMan SAL and used your idea of a DMC variations for the snowflakes and a solid color for the words. I think I'll also "borrow" your finishing idea too. Maybe I should just send it to you and have you finish it for me. LOL Can't blame me for trying.
