Happy April to everyone. By now, maybe everyone has recovered from the Nashville Market and is ready to see something new. I hope so, anyway! Here are four new releases, enjoy.
Praise was stitched on 30-count Legacy linen (Custard Cream), using flosses from DMC and The Gentle Art. Stitch count is 117 x 146. The timing of this piece amazes me. I finished stitching it and getting it framed just before my mother passed away. She is indeed free and I know she is singing.
Lilacs was stitched on 40-count white linen, using Classic Colorworks silk flosses. The finishing was done by Valerie Leith. Stitch count is 63 x 87.
Time was stitched on 36-count R&R Reproductions linen (Plum Street Blend), using flosses from DMC and The Gentle Art. Quote by Henry Van Dyke. Stitch count is 125 x 96. Another quote that brings me to tears for what it means to me right now.
THOUGHTS OF FRIENDS
Thoughts of Friends was stitched on 32-count R&R Reproductions linen (Creek Bed Brown), using flosses from DMC. Finishing was done by Valerie Leith. Stitch count is 68 x 38.
My sister finished Lilacs as a flat-fold which isn’t truly shown in the picture above. When I take pictures of the cover models, I like to show as much of the actual piece as I can. I know if I am shopping for cross stitch charts, I love to see as much of the finished piece as possible. I appreciate beautiful photo shoots but I’m looking to see what the piece actually looks like. This is why I didn’t take a picture of the overall flat-fold finish. But here it is, because I wanted to show off the beautiful finishing work my sister did.
The same applies to Thoughts of Friends. Val finished it as an ornament. Here is a picture to show you the pretty finish:
Thank you, Val – they are beautiful and you are beautiful.
Happy stitching, everyone.
