Paisley Tree - Finish

Well I should really have been working on some of my larger pieces... but instead I decided to do up a quick little Mill Hill Christmas Tree ornament.
This is from their smaller kit series and called Paisley Tree. Used the kit supplies of DMC thread, perforated paper and Mill Hill beads.
A crazy quick stitch, I did this in two nights of a few hours each!

Not really much else to say about this little guy.
I have however made some small amounts of progress on my Mirabilla Mermaid (yes the same one from like five years ago, lol). So it should be the next update.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching!

Witches Night Out Finish

I can't possibly tell you how much I enjoyed this piece. It was an easy, cute, satisfying stitching project. I'm not really sure why; but it was just lovely. I'm waiting to grab some more of Gervais' work as soon as I have some funds available. :)

This is Witches Night Out by Brenda Gervais (With Thy Needle & Thread). I changed most of the colours from the original. I wanted to use things from my stash, and wanted the dress of the witch to be more purple than black.
The coverage is not great. For those that will recall I was worried about that while I was stitching it and decided that was part of the 'antique' look to it. I actually like it now that it's done with it's loose coverage. It seems to fit the feel and look of the piece.

Done on a 32ct 'Smokey White' linen. You can see there is variation in the background of the linen. It's not all just bad lighting, there is actual change and marbling to the linen.

I've actually got a couple more pieces that I've had some good work happening on. I"ll be to back to share them soon!
Thanks for dropping by!
