Live Simply - Lizzie Kate

 

 
 Hello my little Peeps!
 
Time to share a small finish with you.

 
Live Simply
 
 
This was CJC 2016 start #7
And this is how I left it back on the 8th Jan 2016




You might remember I wasn't too impressed
with my fabric choice at the time


Well this is how it looks now all finished!




Yes, I've decided to start it again
and it looks much better!


My model was stitched on
32 count Zweigart Murano Chocolate evenweave
2 over 2 using the preconized DMC threads

Started on the 12th March, finished on the 13th March
Total stitching time: 9 hours



CJC 2016 finish #4
Only 11 to go!


Toodles,
Mii

      Santa got me an LED light with magnifier at Christmas, so it was like stitching on light fabric :)

      It is just the contrast of the colours, it makes the whole design come to life.

  6. Congratulations on another finish! I think you definitely made the right choice changing fabric, especially as you weren't happy with the original start. And you finished it in one weekend? I'm so glad you had a lovely relaxing couple of days. :)
