Keep Our Air Clean - DUCJC 2016 Finish 8/31

Hello fellow bloggers!

Thank you for your comments regarding my second blogoversary and your entries into the giveaway. It's interesting to see which goodies some of you would buy with a voucher.

Second, on my quest to finish all 31 January starts during 2016 here's my latest finish. It's Keep Our Air Clean (obviously!) and was another fun and easy stitch. Here's how I left it in January:


And here it is now:

Lizzie Kate
Stitched on 16ct Muted Garden hand-dyed aida by The Crafty Kitten 2 over 1
Stitch count 40 wide by 63 high
Started - 21st January 2016
Finished - 2nd March 2016
Total stitching time - 7 hours 5 minutes
(estimated 11 hours)


I substituted the lighter leaf green from 580 to 731 as the original colours were too close to each other to distinguish the leaves from the veins. To be honest, in a design like this you could do a lot of substituting and it wouldn't really matter.

I'm going to continue with my month of Lizzie Kates and aim for another finish next week.

Don't forget, there's still plenty of time if you wish to enter the giveaway on my previous post for a chance to win a £10 / US$15 voucher for the store of your choice. Just follow the guidelines and keep your fingers crossed!

Back soon I expect!

Well done and good luck with next project 👍

Another lovely little finish Rachel!How are you planning to finish/finish all of these?
LK is definitely one of my fave designers :)

These Lizzie Kate's are wonderful. I believe every stitcher can find at least one Lizzie Kate that they HAVE to stitch. Your finish is great. It's good to remind us, sometimes it's okay to pick a different color floss and to make the project your own.

Great finish(but I think a month of some certain woodland creatures would be a good idea to ;)

Brigitte said...

Such a nice little finish. The little snail is just darling. Your finishing program is coming along really great.

This is such a cute design, I started it years ago but abandoned it because I didn't like the fabric I was stitching it on.
