Canal Crossing - finished

Hello all,

Here is this month's customary finish from Debbie's Super Duper Ultimate Crazy January February Challenge (DSDUCJFC) 2015. This is Canal Crossing and finish number 29 of the 59 starts.

This is how you last saw it at the end of March:

And all finished:

Canal Crossing from the Heritage Crafts Silhouettes range
Stitched on 16ct Cream Aida 2 over 1
Stitch count 68 wide by 68 high
Started - 10th February 2015
Finished - 10th April 2018
Total stitching time - 27 hours 45 minutes

This now completes the three projects I started from the Silhouettes range (although I still have about another dozen on my to-do list!) I'm not so keen on this one as it contains greys rather than just sepia colours, but it still looks very effective and I'm definitely pleased with the result.

I already have the frames for this and the other two Silhouettes, Milk Train and The Lock, so you should see them emerge from my Box of Shame in all their framed glory in the next few days.

Take care,
Rachel x

Congrats on the great finish Rachel. Are you interested in selling me the 3 charts?

I do love this one. Having the water slightly different does make it really stand out. Beautiful stitching!

I love these silhouettes. So glad to hear you have about 12 more. I love the effects and your stitching is so neat. Beautiful job!
