Ghoul Update

I've managed to get a fair amount accomplished since Wednesday. I've hit a wee bit of a roadblock in the lettering in the middle, but a friend is lending a hand with that. I will hopefully have this completed by the end of the month. It is stitching up very quickly and I am really enjoying the process. 

Well, here is my progress so far:





Design:
 Ghoul (A 2008 design)

Designer: Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers

Fabric: 32 count Belfast linen in Legacy  by Picture This Plus, from their Crystal line. 

Fibers Used:   Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in Noir, 3224, and 3842.

Stitcher's Notes: Project originally started Tuesday, September 2, 2015.  This was originally a Halloween/Fall type design. Turned into a memorial sampler for our only child. Crystal Legacy used to invoke the feeling of frost that has landed on parchment paper. Pomegranates stitched in place of the original acorns. In ancient Greece, pomegranates were considered the fruit of the dead and were said to have sprung from the blood of Adonis

As of Wednesday, June 17, 2015:




As of Sunday, June 21, 2015:

Well, I had best be off. I need to start stitching the pomegranates and I need to find some small crows to add to the piece. I am also seriously considering jet black beads in addition to everything else. I hope everyone is having a great Father's Day Sunday!
