My stitches

by Vivienne » Mon Dec 12, 2016 1:54 pm

Well, let’s start!
I started to stitch when I was a schoolgirl (at that time we didn’t have any kits, only charts from magazines like Burda etc.), but then I had a very long break.
App. 3 years ago I suddenly returned to my hobby and became a big fan very fast.
I prefer cross stitch, but would like to try Hardanger and Blackwork one day. I stitch all types of subjects – people, flowers, landscapes etc.
And now… my finished projects (I don’t have access to the Gallery now, so, let me show my creations here)!
Ladies first!
Recently finished Adia, the Garden Fairy by Mirabilia. I used color conversion (purple instead of yellow) and stitched on Jobelan 28 count by Polstitches.

The Lady with the Lipstick is quite incredible. Really gorgeous picture, well charted & beautifully stitched. You've dome amazingly well there.

I saw the 'Mediaeval Maiden in a 'Cross Stitch Collection' magazine a while back. Looks really good.

What can we say but 'Wow!'?

Regards,

Richard.

Thank you very much!
BTW, Lady with lipstick was very easy to stitch - just 2,5 months (I cannot spend more than 1-2 hrs per day for stitching as I'm working in the office). The chart was really good!
Hope, will upload some more photos tomorrow.

Dimensions, Mother (it's not big, but it was not very easy to stitch - metallic threads, couching and cording :? )
