Eat Locally - DUCJC 2016 Finish 17/31


I have another finish from my myriad of January starts to show you:

This is how Eat Locally by Lizzie Kate looked after my meager 30 minute January start:

And it now 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 - 28th January 2016
Finished - 3rd September 2016
Total stitching time - 8 hours 45 minutes
(estimated 11 hours)

This now completes my stitching of this set of Lizzie Kate Green designs so all six are ready to be finish-finished. I spent a fair amount of time deciding how to finish them off and in the end opted to frame them. I have already ordered and received the frame so it's just a case of putting them in, which I plan to do today.

Happy stitching everyone,
Rachel x

Great work! It's a sweet design and for some reason reminds me of a comedian who used to perform at the holiday camp where I worked as a teenager. He started his act with "Good evening, it's nice to be here. It's nice to be anywhere but I'll stay here because it's closer". Which still makes me smile, eat local - it's closer!

This is a great finish - and looks so good on the hand-dyed fabric.
