I actually put the final stitches in late yesterday afternoon but waited until this morning to take some pictures when the light was better. I have loved stitching this piece, she is definitely one of my favourites and, now that she’s completed, well, I've got that strange feeling of being a little sad that I won't be working on her anymore.
Melissa very kindly shared the colour changes she'd used and from those I introduced red into the piece using GA Old Red Paint and instead of DMC 931 I used GA Old Blue Paint.
This was the first time I’ve stitched on the Elne of Lynnyn linen and I really liked it and will be using it again.
Now to decide on what’s going to be my next project! I’ve a couple of things in mind, I’m jumping between staying with Goode Huswife or going to Ewe & Eye & Friends or something from La-D-Da. Decisions, decisions!!! Who knows, even though I have those in mind it might end up being a completely different designer! It's just going to depend on what jumps out and says 'stitch me'!
Hope everyone’s having a good weekend and if it’s cold and snowy where you are I hope that you’re able to stay inside, keep warm and stitch!
Until next time…
