"Simplicity Goodness Truth" - Heart's Content

Thanks to Vonna and Hannah, I was able to quickly assemble this cube last night before supper. It's so easy! And so quick! I think it took less than 15 minutes, and that was because I had to let the iron warm up. I used a styrofoam cube from the flower-arranging section at JoAnn's, some fabric and ribbon already in my stash, along with the silver brad left over from my scrapbooking days. This is stitched one-over-one on 28-count hand-dyed linen that came with the pattern and floss - a kit that I couldn't resist. Once again, the colors in the photo are a bit "off" - the fabric and ribbon are really burgundy and match the threads really well. This is such a nice way to finish smaller pieces, and I'm sure I will be doing many more!

I like cubes too! Not nearly as hard as one might think. I'm stitching PIFs right now, maybe I should finish one of them as a cube.

That's one cute finish! And cute design too.
