Gentle Friends, it was a quiet weekend here by the Bay and a lovely Epiphany Sunday.....and for my "Little Christmas" present to myself, I finished up ......
... BBD "Christmas Garden" - Stitched on 36ct Navy Bean
It was a great piece to work on over the Christmas Holidays.... and as you can see I recharted the bottom. I've seen this sampler finished up as charted with the words "Christmas Garden" in the bottom, and with the bottom filled in with a super alphabet. I waffled back and forth with the idea of stitching the alphabet because I knew from the get-go I didn't want to stitch it as charted. Then I thought why not just cut it off and rework the border... et voila my solution. I also have not stitched in a bunch of initials, at this point I am leaning towards not, but you never know.....
I also reworked the colors from what was called for and here are the specific changes I made...
Charted - CC Calico Kitty - Changed to WDW Indian Summer ( a red I really love!!)
Charted - CC Fools Gold - Changed to WDW Schneckley
Charted GA Endive - Changed to GA Dried Thyme
Charted GA Heirloom Gold - Changed to WDW Havanna
There you go sports fans thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
