Blueberry - DUCJC 2016 Finish 20/31

Good morning all!

Even though small, I have yet another finish to show you. Afterall, a finish is a finish! This is Blueberry, one of Popcorn's friends from the Popcorn range of designs.

Back in January I left little Blueberry looking like this:

But after a few more hours work he was finished:

Not only that, but I have finish-finished him into a little card too:

Blueberry (magazine chart)
Stitched on 16ct Gold Lurex Aida by Zweigart 2 over 1
Stitch count 43 wide by 41 high
Started - 18th January 2016
Finished - 1st October 2016
Total stitching time - 7 hours 45 minutes
(estimated 10 hours)

Don't you just adore the way he's snuggling up to his comfy blanky?

The fabric was really stiff to work with but suits the design quite well I think. I do admit to "interpreting" the charted colours a little (i.e. blending colours instead of stitching the bottom arm in one colour and the top in another) but it doesn't really notice and I'm more than happy with the result.

Now to choose which piece which will become finish number 21!

Happy stitching :)
