Megan Sends Her Regards!

I've been gifted Stephanie Pui-Mun Laws “Alice in Wonderland” inspired chart from my stitching friend Monica D. Vissoli! I’m sending out regards & thanks to Monica for “The Queen of Spades Sends her Regards!” This year actually marks the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland... So it's the perfect time to start stitching this chart!

Chart mock-up:  photo The Queen of Spades Sends Her Regards2NEW VERSION MOCK_zpszav2rqi3.jpg

I'm stitching it on 20 count Rose coloured Lugana, 2 over 1 full cross. I haven’t done much yet but here is my start! The two of spades foot is appearing!:

I have very unconventional plans for how I want to finish this piece… but I’m not going to reveal them yet! Besides I need stitch it first lol!

Funday Friday

I also won a chart in the facebook “Funday Fridays” competition.   For the prize chart I picked “Of Earth, Air, Fire & Water” by Michele-Lee Phelan.  I’m cropping the art as I want a “lighter” more ethereal feel to the piece, which I think is achieved by cutting the dark section out.

I plan to stitch this one on 16 count aida which will make it it about 16 by 24 inches.  I have never stitched on 16 count before.  I feel comfortable tenting this chart and so I’m going to leap in there and test out some tenting on 16 count (and I thought I’d never tent on anything lower than 20! ha!).  I tried a patch on 18 count fabric and it worked ok…  Not sure how many strands it will need yet but it's going to use a lot of floss…

Anyway, I'm very excited by my new charts and it's all a bit like an early Birthday present as my Birthday is not too far away (5th August)!  So I'll be enjoying stitching away on them!

Happy stitching!
