Balance

This past weekend was a wee bit busier than normal, so I didn't get a chance to get a whole lot stitched. I am pleased, however, that the left side is now completed and the top portion can commence. I have some grand plans for the top section. I only hope that it looks as good on fabric as it does in my head, LOL! :)

Well, here is what I have so far: 



Designer: Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks

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

Fibers Used:  Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Cinnamon Stick, Creme de Menthe, icing and Shepherd's Pasture. Au Ver À Soie  Soie d'Alger in Noir and #942 Grenat.

Beads Used: Mill Hill beads in #03049 Rich Red and #00479 White.

Stitcher's Notes: Substituted Au Ver À Soie  Soie d'Alger in 942 for the Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Cranberry. Substituted the alphabet with motifs taken from Country Cottage Needleworks Christmas Cookies ornament and Little House Needleworks Winter Band Sampler. Santa mug free formed by me. :)
