Thank you! I’m going to try to get some straight-on shots tomorrow (when the sun is up) - I was frantically trying to stitch as soon as the mail came and then get the photos before the sun set all the way.

So beautiful. Well done!

I admire counted cross stitch but have never been good at it. I do knit so I appreciate the skill required to make this.

I confess, knitting continues to elude me! I do so much better with a grid that I can follow, and I’m in awe of some of what knitters can do. I’ll be happy if I can pull off a crochet blanket (the next non-stitch-y goal).

I hope you’ll post a photo or two occasionally - I love to see what other crafty Lizards are up to!

Edited, wrong ass thread.

Lovely. Appreciated the close-ups with the beading that let us enjoy the fine detail. Sighs with admiration yet again!

I used to do Norwegian two-color pattern knitting, and y’know, I worked off a graph-paper chart to get the design right. I think you’d pick it up!

One of my best friends is doing a similar beaded pattern. I thought it was actually the same one for a minute. Lovely work.

Possible. I’d need to remember/relearn how to do a bunch of knitting techniques too. :) It is in the pile to learn with quilting and slightly more sophisticated crochet techniques.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it were the same designer. She’s got a very distinctive style and works with a lot of beads. I really love her stuff and have a bunch more I want to do - I’m just making myself do something a little different this next go-around, although I may end up doing one of her smaller/simpler projects for my mom for Christmas. I’m amazed to realize that this one took about 7 months.
