A Lad Insane

This latest finish is a tribute piece to David Bowie. I have been a long time admirer of his and since his death on January 10 of this year, I have had his music on constant repeat. I listened to his music almost exclusively while stitching this piece. I have the materials to do another one, so I can see stitching several more. 

At any rate, here is an actual finish finish. You can even see the glue drying, haha!




Fabric Used: 32 count Cashel linen in Fog by Picture This Plus from their Crystal (opalescent) line

Fibers Used: Anchor six strand embroidery floss in 46, 328, 335, 403 and 433.


Stitcher's Notes: Began Saturday, January 30, 2016. Finished Monday, February 1, 2016. Backing fabric and trims purchased at Joann's
