Introducing Angela Roselea
And more good news - my Christmas "Welcome' is home from the framer. I am very happy with how it has come up, but not very happy with the quality of this pic. The framed piece is not dull and lifeless like this pic - it is quite vibrant and sparkly.
I hope to be back early next week with a pic of my current project, which is almost finished now. It is a wedding sampler for my niece Ciara. Not the type of design I would have chosen for a wedding sampler, but as it was chosen by the bride, I am hopeful she will like it. Beautiful Wedding Birds. In all my years of cross stitching, this is the only project I have stitched which has taken four skeins of DMC 310. Apart from the black, there are only two other colours on the design - red and white. I replaced the charted DMC 666 with DMC 816 and 321 (randomly, separately and in combination). I didn't like the shape of the hearts as charted (they were much squarer than the those in the pic) so I rounded them off, and also back-stitched them. I'm stitching it on a hand-dyed grey Rustico Aida 18 count.
