The new issue of Gold comes out tomorrow and as I have received my subscriber`s copy, I can show you some pics of the lovely Maria Diaz design that I stitched in July - wow, four months ago it was still Summer?!? So hard to believe, sitting here under 3 blankets even with the heating on full blast... meh.
Anyway, the project. It took 67 hours and I loved working on it, even the bits with metallics which are usually not my favourite part. I don`t know how visible it is but apart from the obvious golden oval frame, there`s leftover snow on the end of branches, on the logs and in the foreground in Light Effects white, so they shimmered under the light of my stitchy lamp (I suppose the photos don`t do it justice). Nevertheless, here it is, the framed picture from the mag, and a little `film` of how this design came to life. Happy stitching! :)
