Gentle Friends, over the weekend I finished up "Santa's Village"... here's a snap...
.... I stitched this on 36ct Natural linen, using most of the DMC and over dyed floss that were recommended. I did however make quite a few substitutions where I thought my colour choices worked better on the linen. The last Cottage was stitched using GAST "Apple Cider" and not the called for "Baked Clay." It was a fun piece to work on!!!! One of the biggest changes I made was to not break the rows with the red and white stripe bars but to wrap the piece in a red and white frame and then add the hearts in each corner.
There are a couple of ideas about finishing I am thinking about - and I still need to acquire some tiny beads to add for Santa, Mrs Claus and Buddy's eyes and the for the gingerbread boys.
That's about it for today, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
