Valie finished her Sew a Mystery as this wonderful box top. Stitched on a 40ct linen with discontinued AVAS silk threads Valie found the perfect Liberty print for lining the inside of the box. Also found in her stash was the sweetest of dotted ribbon. Isn't this finish just gorgeous? There are more picture of this on Valie's blog *here* and while you are there check out her other beautiful stitching and finishing.
Kim of Scully's Cross Stitching chose to frame her version of Sew a Mystery. It is beautifully stitched with DMC variegated thread 88 on a white even weave fabric.
Maureen (no blog) also decided to frame her Mystery SAL. It is stitched on a piece of linen hand dyed by Vikki of Hand Dyed Fibers which has no specific name ... indeed a mystery piece! Her thread 'Paula Abalone' is also by Hand Dyed Fibers.
Three lovely finishes by three lovely ladies. Thank you for allowing me to showcase these here.
Sew a Mystery is available *here* or by clicking on the CHARTS button on the sidebar and remember there are free charts available with a purchase!
For those of you who are participating in this SAL, please note that the SAL closes on December 10 and no parts or the bonus chart will be sent out after this date.
I have been stitching my Christmas ornaments and have 'finished' the two that have to be the mailed out. I hope to finish both stitching and 'final finishing' of the others shortly. I have also stitched the model of a new design and had hoped to be able to photograph it today but alas, it's yet another dark and gloomy day so I have had to postpone the photoshoot. This design will be released as soon as I can re-schedule the photoshoot. It's slightly different to the usual iStitch Design and I hope you like it.
Thanks for visiting
