This afternoon at 2:45 pm with 33 hours and 15 minutes left in 2008 I placed the last stitch on 'Autumn In My Garden'.
stitched 2/2 with face stitched 1/2 over 1
on 32 ct platinum Lugana with DMC floss
This project, which was started in June 2007 as a SAL with my friend B (Brenda finished her's that autumn), took much longer to finish than I had initially thought - not because I didn't find it enjoyable but because other newer projects got in the way.
Finally here she is - I'm so pleased with the result. Stitching the face 1/2 over 1 gives her such a delicate look.
Wishing you and yours a safe and fun New Year's Eve and a happy & healthy 2009.
