Thread-A-Day - Tribal Anchor THE FINISH

I have a confession to make....I stitched more than 1 thread-a-day on this piece on the days I did stitch on it.  I know, it's sort of cheating, but I have several gifts I need to have done by the beginning of March, and I wanted to make sure I wasn't running behind.  I started the piece on December 11th and finished it on January 9th.  I also had about a full week in there I wasn't able to stitch on it at all.

I love the look of the piece and all the little motifs that make up the anchor.  This will either be finished into a pillow or a wall hanging, so we'll have to see what Rita does with it.

I also promised I share a picture of my Tribal Shamrock once it was finished.  I've found living in a small 1-bedroom apartment that it's important to have functional finishes, unless I want to take up every inch of wall space (which I don't), so I Rita turned this piece into a basket front for me.  Don't you just love it?!

Today (Sunday) I'll be working on a color conversion for my next thread-a-day and starting it.  Unfortunately it will be a secret thread-a-day, as it's a gift for someone that follows me online and I don't want them seeing it.  I'll take pics of it every two weeks just like I normally would, and then do a start-to-finish post after they've received it.  And the only reason for the color conversion is to match their home decor.

So, with that being said, I believe it's time for me to get off the computer and get down to business with my stitching.

Until the next time...Happy Stitching!


  1. Congratulations on your finish. I look forward to seeing your mystery piece once it has been gifted, and how you changed the colour scheme to match your friend's decor. :)

  2. Oh Kelly, your tribal finishes are so gorgeous...I love the floss against the fabric on the anchor...perfect! The tribal shamrock is really beautiful and looks like it was made for the basket...also perfect!
    I can't wait to see your secret WIP...very exciting
    Have a great day

  3. Great finishes! Enjoy your new secret project!
