A fresh new day is here and isnt it a beautiful?! I am excited to tell you about my new start yesterday. Birds of a Feather L'Hiver. This is one of 4 in the series. A very long time ago, I bought these patterns, I was only stitching on 32ct, maybe 36ct but never ever would consider 40. At that time higher counts existed I am sure, but had no interest in them, so who would have known? I kitted all 4 of these beauties up with 32ct linen. After doing some measurements , I realized that these finished pieces would have measured out to be 19" x 24 " each, and that isnt framed yet!!!! Well, knowing now what I know about frame costs, and minimal wall space, I elected to re-kit these 4 up.
L'Hiver, is the one I chose to start yesterday on Vintage Fawn Lakeside. The color in the pic is SO off, that it looks like Pear on my screen. You get the idea though. The red for her coat is so vibrant, and looks fabulous with the dk brown hair, I cant wait to stitch on her more.
