Yay! Yes, if you’re familiar with this pattern you’ll see that I chose not to stitch some portions of the design (like the background) & I’ve converted all the Crescent Colours to DMC, and then changed out the Mill Hill beads. But that is my usual M.O.!
I also only half – stitched the wings, and only in the bottom direction. That’s to give it texture. I was going to stitch the top arm in Kreinik #4 032 for a shiny look but it didn’t look quite right.
This is off to the framer on Thursday. Should be back in time for the MIL’s birthday in June!
