Aurora Borealis, Finished!
Here is the overall shot of the finished piece! I am real pleased with how this finished.
The top two patterns on the last row went fast. The hearts were stitched with two strands of silk and then the center crossed cross stitches were done in the Madiera. Candlelight was laid in between the rows and then a sheaf stitch holds it done and the sheaves are tacked down with more Madiera. The same silk is sued to create the fade out design with double wrapped French knots in the centers!
I was putting everything back together, in order, and realize I have lost my instruction sheet for the far right column! Argh! Not happy but if you have a copy of the July/August 2001 Needlepoint Now magazine, would you send me an email! Thanks!
