A Finish!

I've had a finish!  It's a small one but a finish nonetheless.  It was such a fun stitch.  May I present Sarah Seifer 1826 by The Goode Huswife.  Unfortunately this chart is out of print and is no longer in my stash - I know there are quite a few of you that would love to own it!  Sorry!

The threads were converted to NPI...and I can't find my conversion!  When I do, I'll edit this post.  Adam and Eve are a bit of a different color(not as gray as they appear here) but I rather like it as the color suits the rest of the piece.

The only change I made was to leave off the bugels that the angels had coming out of their mouths.  They were made of back stitching with 4 cross stitches forming a square and I felt like the piece looked better without them.

The linen color is more true here.  I love the simple border.

I bound off a knitting project on Friday night and if I can get it into a bath of Soak and dried, I'll be showing that to you soon!

May all your stitches be happy ones!

Your finished stitchery looks beautiful! What happens now? Do you frame it? As a non-stitcher, I'm curious. Can't wait to see the newly knitted FO!

Oh my, Jackie, this finish is gorgeous. A wonderful design by The Goode Huswife. I have always loved her designs and it's such a pity that she stopped designing some years ago. Fortunately I have some of her patterns, they just need to be stitched one day.

Absolutely stunning work Jackie. Love it. x
