4th Finish of 2014!

 Hello everyone!  I have been busy with a few other projects that are finished :-) and my start-itis was going crazy so I decided to reward myself by starting and finishing this tiny kit.

I purchased this way back in 2002 when I was studying abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark from the Eva Rosenstand shop on the main pedestrian shopping street Stroget.

Here is an image of the design made up into a bookmark.
I started this tiny kit on Saturday February 22nd and I had gotten this far by Sunday evening...
And on Monday February 24th I had completed it!!
This kit is titled: The Queen's Guard by Eva Rosenstand.
I really could have finished it in one sitting if I had longer than an hour or two each night to work on it.  I'm glad that I was able to buy this kit so many years ago because usually I over think purchases and then go back to stores multiple times before actually buying things.  Anyways I did buy this on a whim and then a few days later went back to the shop only to find that it had closed and was completely empty! 
I'm not quite sure how to finish this though.  I was originally going to make a bookmark like shown on the image but after seeing so many beautiful finishes of ornaments and pillows I am thinking I might try something new.  I was a bit upset though because I tried ironing this to get out the horrible creases from how it fit into the envelope and I scorched the fabric a bit in the top right corner :(  But I think I will be able to finish it without anyone noticing... 
Now I am off to return to stitching page 8 of Girl With a Pearl Earring.  I have a bit of progress that I was planning to show you but I may lump it all together in my next post.  Until then...
 Happy Stitching!


  1. Congrats on another finish! It looks great - can't wait to see how you're going to finish it off :D

  2. Thank you Sarah! I probably won't finish it up until the end of this year at the earliest when I am finally reunited with my fabric and sewing machine.
