It's finished!!! Having here a major happy dance and can't wait to go to Melbourne and choose a frame for it.
That was an addictive piece to stitch and I loved every moment we spent together. Tomorrow the chart will start it's travel back to it's rightful home. I'm still so very grateful that Carol allowed me to stitch this beautiful chart. Some stitching friends are really generous.
I did made couple of changes though.
The Shaker White didn't show off as well as I hoped on the fabric. After playing around with some options I found one that worked well for me. For the flowers I used a single strand of WDW Confederate Grey and did a half cross stitch over the existing one.
The house is stitched as charted but back stitched with 2 strands of Sage and the roof with 2 strands of Gingersnap.
And I mirrored some of the birds.
Hopefully you're having a great time where ever in the world you are :)
