A La Belle Etoile finish!

Well, I seem to be on a roll with the finishes here lately, which is making me happy. Last night I couldn't sleep, so I decided to burn the midnight oil and get yet another project finished. I seem to have run out of the Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Ivy League, however, more is on the way and it will take me all of half an hour to finish up the wee bit that's left, so I'm calling the project finished now  :P.


At any rate, here's the (almost!) finished piece:




Design: A La Belle Etoile SAL

Designer: The Thread Basket with C Mon Monde


Fabric: 28 count silk and linen in natural by Wichelt

Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Elegant Eggplant, Ivy League, Sweet Lavender, and Tumbleweed. Gumnut Yarns Stars silk floss in #991 ecru. KreinikVery Fine (#4) Braid in 001 Silver.


Accouterments: Jolee's Jewels - Crystallized Swarovski Elements in Purple Violet 4 mm biconeCrystal Moonlight 4 mm bicone20 MM Crystal Aurora Borealis star and 16 mm - Crystal Aurora Borealis moon.







And a close up of a particularly sparkly bit:





I really love how the piece turned out. I think if I stitch it again, I will stitch the house in Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk Elegant Eggplant and the door in Tumbleweed. I think it would look very pretty that way! (Or maybe in  Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Tulip! OOoooo....red houses! :D)


At any rate, I must be off. Today is house cleaning day and I gotta get going. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :)



Respectfully submitted,


C.
