A Little Wedding - Lizzie Kate


Hello Peeps!


As you probably already know, Ariadne recently got married.

My plan was to send her a little surprise on time for the wedding.
Somehow I got confused with the date and my parcel ended up being sent after the big day!

It has now arrived safely, so I can share this with you


OoO


Design is called A Little Wedding and is from Lizzie Kate

Chart came with 32ct lambswool linen fabric and a key charm

My model was worked using DMC stranded cotton
2 over 2 (& 1 over 1 for personalisation details - That was fun!)
 



As you know, my sight is not the best so I found stitching 1 over 1 on 32ct was quite a challenge!
But I've done it and am really pleased with these tiny crosses :)


OoO


Finished of as a small pinkeep,
which I found would be ideal for a keepsake.

I used trim, pins & fabric from my stash
 
 
 
 
The back...
 
 
 
Congratulations to you both,
wishing you many, many, years of happiness!!
 
 



 
 
Toodles,
Mii

  1. What great stitching....1 over 1 is such a strain on the eyes, but you did a brilliant job. Wonderful finishing too. I know that Ariadne will treasure this.

    1. Thank you Rhona!
      I don't see the fun on stitching 1 over 1, but for this piece it was required.
      Glad I've done it but will try to avoid it in future charts :)

      I did count & count again to make sure it would be centred :)
      Thankfully they both have short names, 1 over 1 was hard work!
