There's No Place Like Home

Photobucket


I finished this up on Thursday its taken me 3 evenings and 1 day to stitch this gorgeous design by La D Da, I have stitched it 1/1 on 40ct R&R linen (Creme Brulee) using the recommended NPS thread - which was a dream to use. Its not cross stitched I used petit point stitch for it - that was due to inspiration from dear NatalieJo who had stitched La D Da 'Big Flower' 1/1 on 40ct.

I did use my Mag eyes later in the evening and my little light as my eyes got tired, but I think its worth all the effort, now to find a suitable frame for it and decide where to hang it! I can't tell you how pleased I am with it.

Thankyou to everyone who passed on the Birthday Greetings to mum, it was appreciated.

Thankyou too for your lovely visits and comments ..... again its very much appreciated.
Its a Fobbles stitch-in day tomorrow so guess where I will be all day!! Its Sail away stitching time too so I will take it with me I think, instead of the latest one I have started this afternoon when I finished work, which is another La D da.

Have a GREAT Weekend everyone and keep warm!!

Just beautiful! I have a project coming up for which I will be stitching on 40 ct. over 1, too! I have also decided to use Petit Point, rather than a full cross...

Oh this is so pretty! I can't believe you stitched it over 1 on 40 count! I haven't seen a picture of this design as good as the one you are showing, and I think this will have to make it into my stash pile as some point. Very beautiful stitch Su!

1/1 on 40ct - can I borrow your Mag eyes? How big is it? Looks teeny teeny going by the size of your scissors! It's absolutely gorgeous.

Have a lovely day at Fobbles stitch-in but careful you don't get snowed in - you might have to stay the weekend or even longer and I am sure you wouldn't want that - much!

Over one on any fabric count would be a suicide mission for me, so well done with this one. It's absolutely, positively stunning! I'm really into La-D-Da too these days!

A gorgeous piece and looks very delicate using the 1/1 petit point.
