AT LONG LAST . . .

Oh boy! Am I glad to be able to finally show you my finished 'Snowy Morn' . .  .


My eyes struggled with the 1 over 1 stitching on this design but to avoid frustration and keep frogging to a minimum I stitched 'those' bits when daylight was at its best and kept a glass of wine mug of cappuccino within close reaching distance!

Phew, now to finish, finish it?  I've been stitching another design inbetween this one and that looks like being another Happy Dance in the next couple of days, I'll keep you waiting for the big reveal!

Thanks for stopping by
HAPPY STITCHING

How cute, love it! You are brave with that one over one stuff. :-D

As soon as my fabric dries from dying I will be starting a snowman mitten pattern from Homespun Elegance. I started it, then frogged it all when I decided the fabric needed to be darker.

What a stunning finish! Congratulations! Oh, I so hear you on 1 over 1 stitching. I recently had to frog some of those and it was not fun. But they add so much to a design. Love the Smyrna stitches.

Hugs,
Veronica.
