L*K Bonus Chart (Inspiration Boxer)

In my last post, I mentioned the bonus chart that came with the Lizzie*Kate Inspiration Boxer. Here it is, all stitched up. 



 It's quite small, this piece. I didn't actually measure it (nor do I recall the stitch count), but I'd approximate it at 2 by 3 inches. I stitched this with the recommended overdyed floss on a scrap of fabric from my LNS--it wasn't labeled, but it seemed to me like it was Summer Khaki Belfast


I anchored the beads with full cross stitches. If this piece wasn't meant to be used as a floss tag, I would have only used a half stitch. But since it's meant to be handled, I wanted to make sure those little beads stayed put! 


On a different note, who else has been stitching The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's Woodland Sampler? I just finished February's pattern this afternoon. It's so sweet! I will share progress pics with you soon.

I love the art nouveau feel of the of piece. Might be small, but it sure is pretty! What'cha going to do with it?

Thanks Lisa! I stitched this for my LNS. I imagine the owner will finish it as a thread tag, but I am not 100% sure. :)
