Thank you notes to heaven (Salem 1692 finish)

Put the last stitches in Salem 1692 last night. I really enjoyed stitching this piece. I deliberately left off the stars, as I am hoping to find some charms in different finishes that I can attach instead of stitching them in yet more Old Crow. :P

At any rate, here is the finish:

Design: Salem Witch

Designer: Lisa Roswell of The Primitive Needle

Fabric: 28 count linen in Legacy by Picture This Plus

Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Old Crow.

***Stitcher's note: Stitched one strand of silk over two threads to achieve a more aged look.

It is my custom that when I finish a piece, I generally email the designer to show them what I did with their work and to thank them for designing the piece. I feel very sad that I cannot email Lisa Roswell and show her what I have done. I hope she would have liked what I have done. It was a joy to stitch and I have other pieces of hers that are on my Mount Everest sized to do list. If there is internet access in Heaven, I hope she sees this and is happy with my work. I tried to do the piece justice and I hope I accomplished the vintage look she always favored in her designs. Thank you so much, Mrs. Roswell. I spent many an enjoyable hour stitching this piece and I look forward to stitching more of your designs!


Respectfully submitted,
