Joyeux noel! C'est fini!

I should have just waited to post, however, I did not honestly think I was going to get back to this. However, the fates conspired this evening and I managed to get Christmas In Paris done in time this evening. I had to fudge in a few places, because for whatever reason, somethings lined up, however, others didn't. Ah, well. It makes the piece truly special. :)

At any rate, here she is! 

Designer: A Mon Ami Pierre

Fabric: Zweigart 40 count New Castle Linen in Dirty

Fibers Used: Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in F17, Noir, 215, 542, 942, 3426, 3596, 4625, and 4916. Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Carnation, Old Crow and Slate. 

Stitcher's Notes: Stitched ornament in the colors of the French flag, Bleu, Blanc et Rouge. Changed skirt from lavender, cream and royal purple to black, cream and grey. I wasn't digging on the purples, but I think the black and grey and cream is très chic, non?

As of Tuesday, December 17, 2013, 5:37 PM PST:

Finished Stitching as of Tuesday, December 17, 2013; 11:15 PM:

Well, I best go. Time to clean up the stitchy area and get out another Christmas UFO. No rest for the wicked! :P
