A finish and a new start

I'm so delighted! My M. Quertier 1799 is all done, DONE, DONE!


I've change initials inside the motifs to honor Nicola's blog participants, JP is for Jo who can't think of a clever nick name. Jo is helping Nicola to manage her blogs. NP is for Nicola, the birthday girl who started the Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year  MVV is for Marsha of The Scarlet Letter and of course my own EZ. I left the original 'MQ to MN 1799' and the 'M. Quertier 1799'.
I stitched this piece on the 35ct linen that came with the kit with 1 strand of black silk. I love the silk so much that now I even can't imagine of going back to DMC. Thank goodness that my next project (Ann Kirby Sampler) is also done with silks.

This is the sampler:


and my WIP (work in progress). It's also stitched on 35ct linen with lovely silk threads.


So long my friends,
Evalina

  21. Congratulations on your amazing finish! I'll have to try out silk floss some day! I thought your new start would be the Cut Thru' Igloo but the sampler is going to be gorgeous. What a wonderful start you have already.
