Save Water - DUCJC 2016 Finish 9/31

Hello all!

On behalf of a very happy Angela, who has now received her gift certificates, I would like to thank you all for the congratulatory comments you left regarding her win on my blogoversary giveaway. You were very magnanimous in defeat and, like I said, please come back next year and try again!

The reason for this post today is self-explanatory by the title - I have another finish to show you. This is the second LK Green chart I have completed this month and the third of six in the series.

After one day of stitching in January it looked like this:

And now it looks like this:

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 - 13th January 2016
Finished - 12th March 2106
Total stitching time - 7 hours 45 minutes
(estimated 10 hours)

Once again I overestimated how long it would take to stitch, which is really satisfying and an encouraging feeling for stitching the others.

I have been asked how the set are going to be finished and, to be honest, I don't know. Originally I had a multi-aperture mount in mind but now think I'll make them into some sort of hanging such as bunting. I'll have to browse the good old www for inspiration.

But for now it's back to the grindstone of stitching - the next LK is on my frame and I'm raring to go!

Oh, and an apology..... I am almost a week behind with my blog reading and commenting. I'll try to catch up with you all over the weekend.

Take care,
Rachel x

Very pretty! I like your idea of bunting as a finish.

Preeti said...

Congrats on the lovely finish!! Bunting sounds a great idea !

Katie said...

I really love the adorable animals on this one. Congrats on another wonderful challenge finish!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Great finish! It reminds me of the old Government Advice "save water, bath with a friend" from the 1976 drought.
Not sure the fish and the duck really want a bath with a crocodile though!

Brigitte said...

You are on the roll, Rachel. Bravo on another finish. Hahaha, the grindstone of stitching - that's where I will be going soon too.

Congrats on another wonderful finish! I have no ideas on finishing, unless you're into a set of cubes? That sounds like an awful lot of work to me though. No worries about blog reading on my end, I get that way too sometimes. Too many other things going on. Stitching is always more important. :)
