Election Day

Today marks one of the most important elections in the history of Finland, so this post will be brief as I am about to watch the results show and knit (dishcloths, nothing very exciting). But I couldn't wait any longer, I had to show you this small stitched project I just finished today.

This is what I finished stitching on Friday:
arbre aux oiseaux 1

The fabric is 32ct linen from the Lair, the design is L'arbre aux Oiseaux by Jardin Privé. I had to stitch it, the sheep are way too cute. I think the shape of the stitched design would show well in a round object, and as I was lucky and got some cardboard for finishing, and a fellow stitcher gave me some ideas as to how to do it, I finished it into this:
arbre aux oiseaux 3

I have no idea what that is called, but it is now on the wall in our living room. I think it is quite cute. Here's the closeup of the design:

That's all for now, hopefully I have the finished Gingko shawl to show you sometime next week!

This design is so beautiful, every time I see it I think to myself: "One of these days, I'll have to buy it and stitch it." There are just "a few" other projects that need to be stitched first...

The ornament is lovely, makes me think "I want one of those!"

Vaali-ilta on ollut ahdistava, mutta pistely on kyllä hieno.
