Top Secret Twenty Two

Thanks to an online stitcher friends, I was able to complete #22 from the Bin O'Shame. I had thought to add the Endless Knot in some of the spaces in the piece, but DH and I decided to leave it as it is. It is very clean and uncluttered and we prefer it that way. 

This is my most personal piece that I have ever stitched on, other than the flag that I have in the  Bin O'Shame that is earmarked for my father. I am hoping to get to that one soon, as that is another 'soul wound' that needs to be healed up a wee bit more. 

Well, at any rate, here it is. #22:

Design: Ghoul (A 2008 design). Ravens taken from the September/October 2010 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue, page 29. Designed also by Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers. Leaves the ravens are sitting on were free formed by me. Pomegranates taken from Kreuzstitch and fillet pattern of Grisons  circa, 1927

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

Well, I had best be off. I have a ton of stuff to do today. And with the Bin O'Shame there is certainly no rest for the wicked. :)

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! :)
