Heartsong Stitchery (the Christmas Version) Finished!

I have put the finishing stitches in this Heartsong Stitchery (the Christmas Version) by Rosalie Quinlan . . . and I'm very happy with how it turned out.

It's stitched on linen, using DMC Blanc (3 threads). The stitchery is about 12'' x 8 1/2". Rosalie's pattern was stitched on red linen with white thread, which looks really good. But I was having a bit of a "Scandinavian Moment" when I started this.

I decided to go with a chain stitch on the hear border, rather than satin stitch . . . and I'm really happy with the lacy effect.

I was planning to "frame" this by stretching it around a canvas frame, but "he who sits on the lounge offering advice" thinks that a pair of pillow cases would be good. He's yet to pick up a needle and thread and make a start on the second one!

Pattern: Heartsong Stitchery
Designer: Rosalie Quinlan
