It's finished!

STARTED ~ 25 January 2009
FINISHED ~ 6 February 2009
DESIGNER ~ Creations de Chrystelle (French)
PATTERN ~ Chocolat
FABRIC ~ 32ct Vintage Light Mocha
THREADS ~ DMC
Stitched 1 over 1

I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to get it all done tonight but I got there. Although I'm yet to become a fan of stitching over 1, I do like the delicate and detailed look it gives. Just loved the thread colours of this one too. Now I've just got to decide how to complete it. I think I'll turn it into a mini stuffed cushion. Don't want to make it too difficult since finishing is not my expertise.

I will probably end up stitching this one again some day. I'd like to see how it comes up over two. I also want to get the other chart which is a companion to this one called Tea. It's a similar style with the alphabet at the top.

I think I'm going to have a look at the instructions for this Stacy Nash pattern I've recently received. I'm thinking of starting it next. Don't you just love the excitement of starting a new project?

Have fun stitching and enjoy your weekend.

Jane, I love it. The over one makes it look dainty and delicate, and what a great job you've done. I think I'd like to stitch this one day soon. What lovely colors, too.

Thats a cutie Jane and you got through it quickly. I always feel it takes me longer to stitch over one. Good luck with your Stacy Nash and I look forward to seeing your progress.
