I am so happy to present 3 finishes! The first 2 were finished in April and the last one was finished just last week. This is Kit Kat and Santa's Hat, a cute freebie design from Val's Stuff. Its stitched on 16 count Evergreen Aida from Enchanted Fabrics. I used the recommended floss, except for the 'fur' on the hat. I was supposed to use Whisper thread, but I hate that stuff, so I used 3 strands of B5200. I think it turned out nice.
This is Beach Cottage from Country Cottage Needleworks. Its stitched on 32ct Heritage Lugana from Silkweaver. I love the fabric. Its a lovely pale tan color. And it was wonderful to stitch on. I used the recommended floss on this project. The only 2 changes I made were in the stars. I was supposed to use White floss, but they didn't show up very well, so I did them in yellow. I also didn't use a French knot in the Whale's eye, just a half stitch.
And finally, my favorite piece, Cirque des Carreaux by Ink Circles. This was stitched on 28ct White Opalescent Lugana using Fantasm cotton floss by Carrie's Creation Threads. I love how it turned out. I agonized for a long time over what color thread to stitch this project in and I am so pleased with how the Phantasm worked out.
