It's finished!!

Woo hoo....I've finally finished 'Beacon at daybreak'! And it's gorgeous......


I'm so pleased with the finished result. The mixture of full and half cross stitches done with different numbers of strands of threads give it a lovely textured effect.



And here it is with it's sister design 'Cliffside beacon'. Both these designs are kits by Dimensions....and wonderful to work on :)


I think they look great together. I really would like to do a third design like this as I love sets of three's (strange, I know!) Unfortunately none of the lighthouse designs that I have come across would fit in with these designs, the colours etc don't match.....but I'll keep looking!

Until next time....happy stitching!

Contests it looks beautiful! The only finishes I have are dimensions so far lol I love the mix of colors and stitches. Except the French knots lol

Heather said...

Just some suggestions what about Dawn of a New Day or Guardian of the Sea? Both by dimensions. They feel like they have similar colors to me :)

Wow a beautiful finish... I really should keep working on mine. I just don't entirely enjoy working on it for some reason. Hmmm oh well. Yours look wonderful.

Both together even better! =) I'm a bit like you, I usually go for things in 3 too :p But a different one wouldn't be right, those two look beautiful side by side =)
