Floss Keeper Finis - well almost

Floss Keeper - design by Blackbird Designs
32 count Silkweavers French Vanilla Linen
Recommended floss

I almost finished up the floss keeper this morning. :-) It was only when I went into my bag to get out the last piece of floss that I needed to finish the border did I realize that last night I didn't put the floss back into the bag. :-) Duh. I'm 14 crosses short. But I'll finish it tonight when I get home from work and put it in my ever growing finishing pile.

This is my latest jewelry finish from the Bead of the Month Club. I'm going to give this to my sister for her birthday tomorrow. I'm so not a pink person but she loves pink and I knew it would be perfect for her. This is the fourth kit that I have received (still have one waiting to be finished) and I think I'm ready to cancel. Of the five kits I have received, I have liked one, hated one and was very indifferent to three. Not very good odds at all and I think my money would be better spent on things I know I will like. Things are so busy right now with me getting ready for vacation on Friday. I'm still working on my costume and I have to finish it tonight! Work is driving me crazy and I haven't even put a stitch in Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. I was so caught up and now I'm behind. Bummer.

Oh I love your necklace set. You are so talented you can stitch AND finish your pieces! I can just stitch and that's it. Your keytag looks great. You will have it finished in no time at all tonight.

How frustrating that you didn't bring the thread! Arg! Well, it's gorgeous anyway, and will be done tonight. :D Don't worry about HoHRH. You'll get caught up again. Vacation is more important. :D Have a great time in FL!!!

Stinks that you left your thread at home. Won't take long to finish though.

The necklace is very pretty but I agree with you. If you have only liked one out of 5 it's time to cancel.

That is frustrating when you are so close and have to wait for the finish! Love the necklace. I agree that you are better off choosing your own projects. I never seem to have luck when I join in on those ....of the month clubs.
