2009 Finish-Walk in the Woods

Walk in the Woods
Cricket Collection
24ct ecru Congress cloth
Vikki Clayton silks
Here is another 2009 finish straight from my sampler wall. It was my first use of Vikki Clayton's silks. They are absolutely luscious to stitch with!

I would never have bought this pattern for myself. I traded for it in a giveaway. (Yes, I know that sounds bizarre. But I won something different and one of the other ladies won this and she traded with me :) It came with 40ct silk gauze and the design already started. Well, these "mature" eyes couldn't see to finish it, but on Congress cloth using tent/basketweave stitches--- it was a go! I can honestly say that every stitch was a joy! Wish I could say that about every project. Know what I mean?

That's a wonderful finish. I love the little motifs between the letters.

Took you up on your offer to check out your blog and what you've been stitching. I really like what you've been up to. You have finished some beautiful pieces. It is amazing how many you finished in 2010. Looking forward to the JAT Christmas Box exchange. I ended up signing up how about you? Lorrie

WOW!! I stitched this one too! Isn't it beautiful! I finished mine in 2006, I believe. I found your blog because you entered my very first giveaway.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and I've become a follower of yours!
Take care of yourself...
