It's a BOOtiful Finish!

Hello!  :)

It's done! The pictures aren't the best . . . so sorry! I really do try to get good pictures but they don't ever seem to come out. It really looks much better in person. The fabric is really a rich looking yellow and the threads look fabulous on it.  ;)  Without further adieu here's my version of Lizzie Kate's "Boo Club" . . .


I also took a couple more pictures of half at a time since it's so long. Here's the top half . . .


and the bottom half . . .


I really do wish you could see it in person. To refresh your memory it's stitched on a 28ct Golden Harvest Laguna. I played around with a lot of colors for the stars but nothing looked good. I ended up going with yellow as the pattern called for but added some yellow Kreinik blending filament to make them sparkle and show up better. I also added some white blending filament to the spider web. I'm very happy with how it turned out.  :)

I haven't started a new cross stitching piece yet but have lots to choose from. First I have to work on a sewing piece. I started it last night but you'll have to wait to see it. You won't be waiting too long though as it's supposed to be finished by the end of the month and I only have a day and a half left. There's nothing like procrastination . . .

Until next time . . .
