Stitched OVER ONE on 40 ct Newcastle w/DMC
Isn't this GORGEOUS beyond belief? My dear friend Char stitched this for me. It came in the mail today & I'm just speechless. I told her she needed to keep it, but she is going to stitch it again for herself - she is going to do the series of 6 over one and make a bellpull out of them. I've already been in touch with Jill Rensel about framing mine!! Can you imagine - 40 stitches in a an inch - 1600 in a square inch? It just boggles my mind. I don't mind stitching over 1, but on 40 count? Geez......
I've known Char for 12 years and she has gifted me with several beautiful stitched gifts - they just seem to get better & better!
And changing the subject - I'll have the drawing for the winner of my contest (below) tomorrow!!!
Edited to answer Missy's question - she stitched it with full x's! She said after she'd gotten a fair amount done she wishes she'd used /'s though - it got a bit "bulky" even with one strand - but it's still GORGEOUS!
