Last 2 finishes for 2012
Here are my last two finishes of the year, on finished on December 30 and the other on December 31.
First up was Stained Glass Pansy, by Solaria Gallery:
I really only did the bottom half of the stitching, as it was sent to me partially done by Adrienne, from TryllaCraft. Thanks Adrienne, I really enjoyed stitching it!
Next up is the Mystery Autumn SAL from By the Bay Needleart:
I had a lot of fun with this one, and made a lot of changes which are recorded below.
Boat sail: DMC B5200 instead of Ecru
House and lighthouse roof, door and windows: DMC 844 instead of 3371.
Fences and clouds: DMC 3024 instead of Ecru
Ocean: blend of DMC 502 and Anchor 1064 instead of DMC 502
Leaves: Oliver Twist hand-dyed cotton number 012, 3 over 2
Pumpkins: blend of two Anchor oranges, color numbers unknown.
Bushes - Rhodes stitches
Sheep - French knots
Pumpkins - cross-stitches below straight stitch
Doors and windows - 2 over 1 cross-stitches
Fence - long stitch, done with 2 threads
Boat - added in extra backstitching for better definition of the sail against the fabric
