Singing In The Rain - Madame Chantilly



Here is another finish I can share with you!!




Singing In The Rain
from Madame Chantilly

Stitched 2 over 2 on
pearl grey 28 ct Zweigart evenweave Brittney fabric,
using DMC threads as per the key

My model was finished as yet again a little cushion
using fabric & trim from my stash

Apologies for the poor picture,
but I took it when it was raining (how appropriate!!)


I love the design and really enjoyed working on this project.
However, I am so not happy with my finish! Not my best at all...

oOo

Now, time to make someone happy!!
How about giving the original chart away??

Please leave a comment stating you wish to take part in the giveaway
and be a follower (blue box on the right).

I will post worldwide.
If there are more than one person taking part, I will draw a name from the virtual hat
and announce the winner on Saturday 9th Aug

Good luck!!

oOo

Happy Stitching
Mii

    1. You're so sweet Alicia :) I just do not like the red trim I chose. It is too thick for this finish and my yellow fabric is too pale, so somehow I think it doesn't look right!
