My final piece finally made it across the ocean to Leeds where my second swap buddy Mrs. Lacer lives. As I mentioned before her theme was Arthurian legends. I shared a sneak peak the other day, now to show you the rest of it.
I stitched this twice and ripped out the first one. I tried using colors the first time around. Emerald green for the Lady’s Dress, striking silver for excalibur, the silvery blues for the water and the misty streamers – and it didn’t work. You couldn’t see the background at all. I was so disappointed. So I ripped it out and stitched it again in a mascara. The image at least came through better. I really am happy with the final piece.
