Believing in Beautiful Things
Close to four years ago, I started this project. I’ve documented some of it in the comments over the past year, showing bits and pieces of progress. Today, the last set of beads arrived and I was finally able to finish it, a nice counterpoint to the depressing news of the day. I’d rather take my energy and do something positive.
The pattern is Mirabilia’s Shakespeare’s Fairies, stitched on 32 count linen from Picture This Plus (I think it’s charcoal). The total stitched area is a little over 19” wide and 8.5” tall. Eventually I will get it ironed and sort out framing, but for now I am luxuriating in the feeling of having finished my biggest needlework project ever.
