And Another Finish!

This was the piece I started in a workshop at my face to face chapter of EGA (Pocono Mountain) at the end of October. I finished it on Wednesday, but it too had to wait until my husband got home to take a picture. I thought I was going to get it framed and give it away as a Christmas present next year, but both my husband and daughter want it kept in the house, so I'm overruled. With this, I discovered how hard it is to make a round circle on needlepoint canvas. I also really changed the inner design and added all the gold. I think the gold makes it look more luxe and better - the ecru just wasn't showing up for me. This also makes my fourth finish of my Ten Project Challenge. I'm kind of surprised that I've already gotten four done, but I'm not complaining.

I concur! Very nice.

You may find an article about stitching circles on needlepoint canvas in ANG's archives of old Needle Pointers magazine articles. Let me see.....

Oh, here it is--second from the bottom. Lots of great info here.
