Sun Blossoms Done

Today I did the back stitching and beading on the Just Nan Sun Blossoms Tree.  I love the bright colors and today's sun shine helped to improve the day.  This is a fussy project but the colors are so worth it.


Next up is Sweetheart's Tree Halloween Quadrille.  The finishing for this one is fascinating to me.  I know that sounds crazy.  LOL.  But I do enjoy the finishing part.


I was asked about floss organization.  I use the Stitch Box system for my DMC.  I have snack bags for overdyed floss.  I use a floss tote to organize any project.  It all works.  This project I have floss in the kit.  So I sorted it, put it in the tote and then marked the symbols for each color.  My stitch bows also fit in the tote.  It works out rather well.

I still haven't come up with a good system for all my overdyes, and hate when kits come with thread that only winds up in a tangled ball. Love sunshine tree though, such wonderful colors on it.

Wow! I can't believe you've already finished this one!

Love the Sun Blossoms with all the fiddly colour changes you completed it really quickly.

Any idea's yet for finishing it would make a lovely picture to put all four of them together when the other two are released.

I use floss bags for all my threads and have the different projects I work on in little clear boxes with a photocopy of the picture on the top. I always have a couple of projects on the go.

Looking forward to seeing the progress on your new one.
