Winter Silhouette is Finished


I put the last stitches in it about an hour ago. I love how it turned out and can't wait to do Harvest and Bethlehem. But I will work on Stealing Oats next and finish that off then go back to The Caretaker. The picture doesn't do the piece justice.

Thanks for all your suggestions on the TV. The TV is working now. My dad called Comcast and they walked him through what to do. We figure I used the wrong remote the other day and that's what screwed everything up.

Well-until next time Happy Stitching!

Oh my God, this is so beautiful!! I love it so much that I clicked to this photo many times... Thank you so much for sharing your great work with us Barb! I must do the same piece before this Christmas!! But.. I wonder if other thread would bring me the same effect. Would you mind to tell me the brand and the number of this thread?? Big thanks in advance!!!

Barb said...

Thank you for your comments. This piece is by Diane Arthurs of Imaginating. I used 30 yards (3 skeins) of Valdani Over Dyed Threads, Blue Clouds was color of thread). The three skeins barely made it. You can use 7 skeins of Weeks or Gentle Arts, or DMC. Those threads are much easier to find and use I think.

Oooo... pretty! You should be proud.
Glad your TV is fixed. :o)

Kitty said...

Wow, thank you so much Barb!!
I've never used any Over Dyed thread before, so I don't really know how to choose..I'll just follow your Blue Clouds..and you are right, it's not easy to find!
