Something new

A while back, I stitched this design called Mystic by Ruth Dilts.  It is all done in coppers, some gold and black for my sister.  She has asked for a companion piece to go with it.  I am pulling threads, some graph paper and my stitch books.   Let's see what I can come up with to fill that request!

Autumn Reflections done!

I added the borders by laying in a double strand of Kreinik, added diamond shapes in the overdyed and then smaller ones in Marlitt.  I now have Winter, Summer and Fall all done.  Spring Reflections will be appearing sometime in the future.

The four outside corners are all done!  Lots of shading and they are wonderful!  Just the outside borders left to go!

The corners are slowly filling in.  Each set of leaves around the previous row is a different set of two strands of floss.

Stardust is by Leigh Designs design 5022.  She is one of the eight in the Showgirls series.  She arrived in the mail today!  She is 8 x 20 on 18 count canvas.  More information on her later.....back to stitching leaves.

Each of the four corners is worked from the outside in.  Each row is a different combination of floss so far.

The last rectangle

The last rectangle of leaf patterns took a lot longer.  There are 9 different thread combination of two strands that are all tied down with Kreinik.  Whew!
