Seventeenth Finish For 2011

Yes, you read that right... I'm so behind with my Blog that I still have a handful of finishes to share with you! LOL!

I was SO happy to finish this project because all I saw was white, white, white. I love this pattern though so I plugged away :o) This is Winter Silhouette by Imaginating -

This is not a great picture because it doesn't represent the color of the fabric really well. I used DMC 3865 on 28 count Colonial or Denim Blue (I can't remember!). I used two strands of floss for the cross stitch and one strand for the backstitching. The pattern called for two but that looked too heavy for my liking.

If you haven't checked out the Pumpkin Patch & Co. Graveyard, head on over and take a look at my list of 2011 finishes as well as my 2012 goals :o)

That is really gorgeous! I don't think I could bear doing that much white with nothing to break it up. But it really was worth it to end up with that!

What a pretty piece. I can't decide whether it would be a fun stitch, or boring. Nice work!

Oh, it's so pretty and tranquil looking, Cathey!! Can't imagine stitching all that white, but in a way, it must have been quite soothing :)
