Star of Wonder - Lizzie Kate


Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...

Here is what I have finished stitching during the weekend
- Before starting my new sepia design! -

This is Star of Wonder from Lizzie Kate
I had this little chart in my stash for a while and thought it was about time I digged it out!!!

I have opted for a 28ct Zweigart evenweave Brittney Pearl Grey fabric
Used all DMC colour equivalents
Stitched 2 over 2
Finished off as a little cushion with Tilda fabric & pink lace

I've left out the little charm around her neck and
instead swapped one colour for a DMC metallic E677
Adding a lovely touch of sparkle on the stars ☺

Happy Stitching!
Mii 


Voiçi ce que j'ai terminé ce week end
- Avant de commencer mon grand projet aux tons sepia! -

C'est Star of Wonder de Lizzie Kate

J'ai opté pour une toile 28ct Zweigart evenweave Brittney Pearl Grey
Utilisé tous les brins DMC équivalents
Brodé 2/2
Terminé en coussin avec tissu Tilda et dentelle rose

J'ai déçidé d'ignorer le petit charme d'origine qui devait aller autour de son cou
A la place j'ai fait un petit échange de couleur
Fil DMC métallique E677 pour donner un petit éclat aux étoiles
qui son maintenant toutes scintillantes ☺

A tout à l'heure...
