Alpha Sheep Finis

Alpha Sheep from Sheepish Designs (part 3 of 3)
32 count Wichelt Latte Linen
Recommended NPI Silks - 2 over 2

I finished up Alpha Sheep this morning. :-) I love how all three look together and the colors are so bright.

In case anyone is interested in doing all three pieces together on one piece of linen like I did, here is the NPI silk fiber skein count. I started the piece will all new skeins of NPI silk. At the end of section 2, I purchased additional skeins of 222, 224 and 746. When I was finished with Alpha Sheep, part 3, I had only used the extra 222. I'm not very frugal with my floss usage and I literally had none of the 224 or 746 left from the first skeins. So I doubt if you did this piece on 32 count 2x2 you would need the extra skeins of the 224 and 746 and certainly not at all if you did it on 36 or 40 count.

Margie, it's absolutely beautiful!! I've not seen this one done up and only have part one of it, but it's certainly enticing! BRAVO!

Congratulations, it looks fabulous! I have these charts and the silks, plus a lovely piece of 36ct V. Light Examplar - I'm planning on stitching them all together like this, hopefully next year.

The only word for this finish is FABULOUS!! . . . OK, well, perhaps stunning, gorgeous, and stupendous would work as well!! I absolutely adore the 3-in-1 finish, and I'm planning to do the same. In fact, I'll be bookmarking your entry to refer back to once I'm underway. I only wish I were starting it today!! Right now!!
