A Serene Finish

I put everything else aside and finished up on "Serenity." Woo-Hoo!!!!!!!
I have It is now ironed and put away until I finish "Forgiveness." I already have the chart and am waiting on the floss to arrive form Drema at Needlecraft Corner. I have recharted the colours for over dyed floss' instead of the recommended silks as I want these to be a pair and to hang together. Here is a snap of the finished "Serenity." I think it turned out quite nice.


Stitched on 28 ct Weichelt - Country French Cappuccino
using the recommended Crescent Colours over dyed floss'

It was lots of fun to stitch. I can't remember when I started it. I think it was in April.
Oh well on to "Forgiveness." I also picked up some DMC floss colours that I did not have so that I can start on Lizzy's RR.

We got some lovely roses last Thursday and they have really lasted. I think they are called Magic or Magician or something like that.
They are a really nice orange colour and perfect for the fall. Here is a snap.




I will put my rotation tomorrow as I still have not tweaked it to where I want it to be.

Hope everyone had a great day off yesterday.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!


Take care,
edgar

Serenity came out just gorgeous. Congratulations on such a beautiful finish!! I know once I see you start Forgiveness that I'll have to buy that chart, even though I'm trying to control my stash buying.

The roses are lovely ;)

Congratulations on the finish... it's beautiful! I think I would have been too lazy to fill in all that border, though :)
