Cross Stitcher in Residence

I just realised that I didn’t post my latest finish – which I put to rest before I picked up Quaker Christmas II.  I was supposed to stitch this last year then donate the chart to a Facebook group where we passed it along between a group of online pals … with everything that happened with Dad last year and all the stress at work I just couldn’t bring myself to kit it up and stitch it – all the commitments at the time seemed to overwhelm me.  Well it seems one of the group’s charts has since gone missing and the stitcher it is sitting with has gone offline … so I was asked if I’d mind bringing the chart back out of hibernation and doing it for the group – I was more than happy to do this, and decided that I would include the chart in my “small project” rotation slot so that I wouldn’t break the rhythm of my rotation, but would be able to get it done quite quickly in that slot.  Here is the finished product:

LizzieKate-Cross Stitcher in Residence
“Cross Stitcher in Residence” by Lizzie*Kate”
Stitched on 32ct Ivory Lugana
with threads of my own choice
Started 30 Jan 2014 – Finished 1 Feb 2014

I pretty much changed every single thread bar one (GAST Shutter Green for the trees) – I just chose various threads from my stash for everything else.  My thread choices were as follows:

  • Crescent Colours – Blue Beatrice, Cocoa Bean, Cool Azul, Razzleberry
  • Dragon Floss – Saying it with Thread Peace
  • GAST – Shutter Green
  • Needle Necessities – Grecian Olive

    Like this one! Wonder if I might modify it for myself by substituting Quilter for Cross Stitcher? I could use either one really, as I still enjoy a bit of cross stitching now and then!
