HD and a new start


FINALLY got Poirot finished last night at Sit and Stitch. There's a lot of open canvas left on this which is a change from the last 2 pieces, the photo on the pattern actually looks as if there is silver fabric behind the piece that shows through the open holes which I likely will have the finisher do if/when I send this one off. I'm still undecided on that one, its not THAT difficult to finish an ornament but I'm still not that confident of my finishing skills to be cutting up canvas and risk a wrong cut and ruining the whole piece. We'll see... I also have Mojave here waiting to be finished, I was waiting until after the holidays to send anything off since I really wasn't worried about having it for Christmas this year


Here is my small start on Monrovia, a bit of the border put in last night but Indiana seemed to think I had priorities aside of stitching and he did his best to be in the way ;) As you can see from the threads this one is an assortment of white and cream, there is some gold and silver Kreinik but I missed those when I was taking the picture.

  6. Yay on finishing Poirot! It turned out beautifully, but the silver backing would give it even more oomph. Bring on Monrovia! Love the colors and textures in this one. :)
