Challenge Finish 9

Hello everybody!

Good grief, I'm on a roll with my stitching at the moment and have yet another finish to show you! Thank you for all the lovely comments you left regarding my last finish - I hope you like this one just as much!

This one is from 2nd January and was my first ever venture onto evenweave. To make it more difficult for myself I was also stitching white on white!

Souffle - Christmas Quacker
Featured in Cross Stitch Crazy issue ???
Stitched on 32ct Antique White Opalescent Evenweave by Fabric Flair 2 over 2
Stitch count 59 wide by 47 high
Started - 2nd January 2015
Finished - 21st April 2015
Total stitching time - 10 hours 10 minutes


With hindsight I probably should have chosen a different colour fabric (but kept the silver sparkles which you can just about see in the photo). The white doesn't look wrong, but Souffle would have shown up more on something like a very pale blue. Nevermind. I'm still very very happy with it.

I've now finished the smaller challenge pieces so will definitely not have another finish for a while - although I suppose that depends on what your definition of "a while" is!

9/59 Challenge pieces down, 50 to go!

Love and hugs,
Rachel x

The colours of your little chick really pops against the fabric - which you know I really like :) - it's just lovely! Congrats on your latest finish!

What a cutie! I have to admit, I had to go back and look at the start for this one. I couldn't remember it! Love how the colors pop on this one!

Congrats on the lovely finish !! So cute:)
I find white on white very difficult to stitch. When I am working on aida fabric, Sometimes, I have to touch and see whether a white stitch was already made.

Congrats on another wonderfully cute finish, Rachel! I love him peeping out of his little egg. How did you like working on evenweave? I've just ventured into that myself.

Lovely little finish, I love Soufflé, so cute! The fabric looks lovely, I know what you mean though but I do like the one you chose. Great little finish :)

Justine said...

Cute finish and gorgeous fabric! Love it. How did you get on with evenweave? I don't really have a preference for what I stitch on, I like to chop and change.
