Another finish for the end of February

I guess having this extra day in February has been lucky for me I have another finish for this month, well the hand embroidery is done now I have to trim away the excess Stitch and Wash away product, its my first time using it so I don't know what to expect.

I used a varigated embroidery floss in shades of purple from my vintage floss stash, JP Coats brand with the price of 5 cents, it stitched well with nary a tangle which was nice. Stitching through the product wasn't a problem though I did notice I had to push the needle a bit harder near the end of the piece.  

I do like the fact the lines didn't come out wobbly which seems to be the case when I trace a pattern so I will use the Stitch and Wash product again especially when I have a more intricate patten to work or I'm too lazy to trace.

I'm linking this post over at Super Mom No Cape where you can find a sweet vintage hand embroidery pattern, and many other talented bloggers posting what they are working on.
