It has been a busy week with work and I also went to see the movie The Birds up on the big screen...
I just LOVE that TCM is showing the classics in the theaters :D
And here she is~ My Mary Wigham finish! WooHoo!
|Mary Wigham by Needleprint|
dmc thread / 32ct lambswool linen
My needle really seemed to fly in the last month, and I really think it is because of reading the chart from my laptop. It has been so much better on my eyes!
Here is that top corner... I love the gold much better than the ecru.
It was worth all the trouble of frogging!
I did make Mary my own by using some colors not called for...
all dmc, my choices were 680, 3722, 712, 3740, and 3041in addition to most of those charted.
I also chose to do a special personalization.
Instead of using the initials Mary originally stitched, I decided to use this sampler, which originates from the UK, to commemorate my trip to the UK in 2007 when I visited to see the Rolling Stones on tour!
I met a great group of friends on that trip so I stitched all of their initials into Mary!
Thanks for stopping by, I love reading all of your comments!
And welcome to my new followers, I look forward to reading all of your blogs too.
I have hit the 100 mark, so I think a giveaway will be fun, I will post the details in my next post! :)
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
Happy Friday and Happy Stitchings!!
