Phoenix Quaker Finish

I sincerely loved this piece. It flowed so smoothly and it came together so quickly. The entire time I stitched on it, it felt as if that was the project that I was supposed to be working on. I truly did not want this piece to end. But alas, as I only had enough of the Picture This Plus 32 count linen in Phoenix for this one section, this was the way it had to be. The chart has been returned to storage, and I will be stitching this one again in this color combination. 

Design: Phoenix Quaker

Designer: Jackye Derhay Renahy of A Mon Ami Pierre (retired)

Fabric: Picture This Plus 32 count linen in Phoenix

Fibers: Gumnut Yarns Stars silk floss in #991 ecru

Stitcher's Notes: Stitched 2 over 2 as the coverage was needed as I wanted this to be a monochrome piece. Only stitching a portion of the design.

Original Work:

Finished As of Saturday, March 21, 2015:

Now I need to find a frame for it. I wish I could afford to have it farmed out to have it finished as a pillow, because I think it would be lovely as a pillow or perhaps as a wallhanging. Ah, well. More's the pity! :)

Well, I have to be off. It's decision time as to whether I work on a card or another piece from the Bin O'Shame. Happy Sunday!


Respectfully submitted,
