WIP Wednesday Two For The Show

I decided to continue with my grand plans for the Bin O'Shame projects in the year and picked up my latest WIP from said Bin O'Shame . I have had this current piece for almost 20 years, so yea, it's time I got off of my backside and got on with it. As I had lost the original DMC, I had to go out and purchase more in order to complete the project. Thankfully, there is not a huge difference in the dye lots. 20 years is an awfully long time in between dye lots!

Well, at any rate, here is where I am now:

Design: William Morris Tile 

Designer: Sheila Hudson 

Fabric Used: 28 count black jobelan by Wichelt

Fibers Used:  DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117  in the called for colors

Stitcher's Notes: Design taken from the July 1996 UK Cross Stitcher magazine. Substituted the called for 28 count antique white jobelan for 28 count black jobelan by Wichelt as I wanted the piece to look like stained glass. Began the piece in August 1996.

It's very pretty, especially on that fabric! The colors really pop!
