It definitely is the longest. How many more hours are you anticipating?
BEAUTIFUL!!!!! You are almost there Mary.....sending positive thoughts your way for a finish soon!
What kind of floss are you using? I love both the color and the texture.
Just beautiful. I really like the subtle shading of the floss you used. Just perfect.
Looks AMAZING Mary!! You are so close to the finish!
Thaks everyone! Marsha, I'm using Silk'n Colors Finnegan's Fog. There are many other pictures on it on my blog.
Truly amazing. You'll be finished before you know it....
Wow! Love your choice of thread and fabric. Mary, did you sort of plan the light and dark areas as you stitched, or just let them happen as the thread changed? I haven't used a variegated thread and just wondered how you personally handled it. Just beautiful!
Really, really inspiring Mary. I have so enjoyed following your progress with this gorgeous She is an heirloom sampler for sure.
Pamela, it was a little bit of both. I had a single skein of the silk when I decided to go with it, and it was rather dark. Knowing it wasn't enough, I ordered 2 more and then 2 again later. The first two skeins that arrived were a different dye lot that was quite a bit lighter in tone. The last 2 were a 3rd dye lot and somewhere in between. I used the first darker skein for accent motifs and the remaining ones for the rest of the piece. It really was serendipity, but I do like how it worked out!
Oh, this is looking so pretty. I love the colors. It looks like a finish just around the corner.
