St. Reatham finis!


St. Reatham by Long Dog Samplers
36 count Silkweavers Golden Promises
Vikki Clayton Silk in Mermaid Blue 2327

I did it! It's finished! I started St. Reatham, on April 26, 2007. I was going to work on it every Thursday as a rotation piece but I quickly found that I'm not much of a planned rotation person. So I worked on it every so often for a week or so at a time. Of course I made a huge push over the past month and a half so I could get it done by the end of the year. I'm really bummed that Silkweavers doesn't seem to have it's showcase contest this year. This is a piece that I think could have a chance in the large category. Maybe they will do it again next year.

I was thinking about what was next on the way home from work tonight and truly I have no idea. But I need to pull it from my stash for sure. I have a couple of biggies that I can start on tomorrow if I wanted. I think it needs to be one of those for sure.

Congratulations! I know you will hang it proudly once it is finished. Even though those dogs at the bottom are leaner than your gorgeously cute little pugs, I am sure they would chase that rabbit with vigor. Happy Holidays and here's to a Splendid New Year.

What a beautiful piece! Did you ever get tired of stitching with one color of thread? It is really stunning, and I'm sure you feel a great sense of accomplishment.
