This is my first finish since joining "Our Scarlet Letter Years". It has taken two days to load a picture but I did it! I finished Abigail Gould stitched in silk. The only change I made from the colours called for was on the tree. I started the tree in black as called for but it was flat, so i removed what I had done, grabbed a skein of Caron Waterlilies over dyed silk called Sable. The silk was thinner than AVAS silk used in the rest of the piece so I got out my laying tool and used two strands. I like the way the tree came out, it has that "old" look with the several shades of colour. This is the very first time I have changed out a colour in any historical kit, but i am happy with my results. This is what it is about correct? This summer I need to get busy and make frames as most of my finishes are not framed yet.I have always been so excited to finish a piece and could hardly wait to start another I always put the framing off for one day.... Well the day is fast approaching!
Next Scarlet letter project is the Stitch Along, Ruthy Rogers. I hope you join us! happy stitching! bob
