Thank you to everyone that has left such wonderful comments on Village!! I am still amazed it is done. I know you have been waiting patiently also to see the new WIP's I have been teasing you with. The first pictures is the start of the new Long Dog 'Pigalle'. Surprised? The colors have been completely changed, and the fabric too. Of course :). I am using 40ct Tarnished Silver Lakeside Linen, with Belle Soie & Gloriana silk; 1 strand over 2. I am thrilled with the turnout. It was a difficult choice. It took several conversions, with the help of several ladies, and several days to think about it. I love the colors, and look forward to the outcome. I didnt realize all the blackwork involved, and I am not a fan of stitching it, I love the outcome though. As I say, one stitch at a time!
This 2nd picture is another Long Dog piece called 'Nimrod'. Stitching on one of my favorites, 40ct Vintage Autumn Gold, Lakeside Linen with Gloriana silk. I really like the color combination, it is so different from what I usually stitch. Well I guess both pieces are. It is nice to work on a small piece for a change!!
