Gentle Friends, over the weekend I finished up this really big piece, and I'm really sorry to see it end. It's always the same, you work on a piece for a few months and then it's over and you move on to something else. Oh well, I am happy it's done and now for some snaps.....

White - I don't like white stitching, and I really didn't like the white stitching in this piece so I went with a pale green Limited Edition hank of silk I had, it has no specific name.
I also added a pink colour "Carnation" that was not called for, but I like what it added. Now, in stitching this piece I shifted some of the colours charted for other colours as I went along, because I thought it looked better - my stitching my choice!! It really is a big piece of work measuring from edge to edge 24" x 16" and it was my first time stitching on 40ct linen..... and I really enjoyed it immensely!! The only thing I am thinking about with this piece is stitching the bottom border that is missing, I'll have to see about that.....
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
