It's finished!!


On Sunday afternoon I put the final stitches into White Nights!


At last, it has taken the best part of three years to complete this project.  Although the last stitch was put in on Sunday it has taken me three evenings add the crystals.  Here are some more shots.





The details, this was stitched on 32ct opalescent linen with a mixture of DMC, overdyed silk and Rainbow Gallery metallic threads, as recommended. Basically, the solid colour silks, NPIs, were substituted for their DMC equivalents. The beads and crystals were the recommended ones.

So what next?  Well, you know me, I have a number of other projects on the go, five at the last count, so I'm going to finish them off first and then have a fresh start in the New Year, well that's the plan.  Thanks for all your supporting comments with this project over the last three years they have been much appreciated.

Happy stitching!

That is quite an accomplishment. How did you stick with it for 3 years? It is a beautiful piece and I'd like to see what it looks like framed and hung.
