So I finally got my fabric to start my new chart that I got custom charted by HAED. I'm sure some of you have read that as a gift to my husband I decided to cross stitch a pic of us.
It is a old pic about 10 years old, and it got quite scratched up. But Michele from Haed did a fabulous job and was able to give me a beautiful chart to stitch.
I ordered some Zweigart Lugana from Sew and so. And I finally got the fabric last night!
Here is a pic so you can get an idea what the gorgeous fabric looks like!
Fabric -25 Count Lugana Vintage Marble
Stitching - 1 over 1 Full Cross
Using Kreinik for the Sparklies
As you can see there is a lot of white involved around us, and as part of the 'halo' around us, Michele added just a special touch of sparklies. After talking with a stitching buddy of mine (Michelle) I decided to do the main part of the design first and then the Kreinik, and then save the white for last.
So that meant that I could skip to page 3! I wanted to make sure I did everything properly instead of rushing myself in the excitement. So I made myself do the edges and then I grided into the thrid page! Well counted and double counted where the third page started! And then I made my start!
I hope this weekend I will get more time to do some proper stitching on my special project!
Until the next Stitch,
