Winter - finished

Good afternoon!

So here we have my first WIP finish for 2018 and finish number 27/59 from Debbie's Super Duper Ultimate Crazy January February Challenge (DSDUCJFC) 2015. This is Winter from The Four Seasons and a companion for Autumn which was completed in June 2015.

Here's how you last saw Winter way back in December 2015:

And now finished:

Designed by Maria Diaz and featured in Cross Stitch Crazy issue ???
Stitch count 56 wide by 56 high
Stitched on 16ct white aida 2 over 1
Started - 22nd February 2015
Finished 7th January 2018
Total stitching time - 20 hours 20 minutes

And next to Autumn as a reminder:

The winter colours were so soothing to work with and actually brightened up the gloomy rainy winter days on which I was stitching this project!

Both Autumn and Winter will remain in my Box of Shame until I have completed the whole set so that I can frame them all together. Spring and Summer are both planned finishes for this year.

Back soon with some actual finish-finishes.

Take care,
Rachel x
