The Big Red by The Silver Lining
Stitched over one on 25ct Summer Khaki Lugana
I saved my biggest new start for today, the final day of the challenge! Today's new start was The Big Red by The Silver Lining. This piece is 274 stitches wide by 440 stitches high! I'm stitching it over one on 25ct and the design uses a combination of DMC and Anchor threads giving you a wider pallet for shading. Since I've had so many mis-haps during this challenge I decided to start in the very center of the 16 page chart. From the center point I worked my way up and to the left, so that I would be in my "happy place" the top left hand corner which is where I prefer to start.
Does it look like a bunch of poppies yet? Nope just a purple blob, a red blob, and a pink one!
I wont' be finishing this piece this year, I'm not sure if I'll get back to it any time soon either... but I had been dying to start it for a very long time! Now its started.
