**THIS IS THE SAME POST ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED QUITE SOME TIME AGO HOWEVER I REALIZED THAT IT IS ACTUALLY MY 6TH AND NOT 5TH FINISH SO I TRIED TO CORRECT IT USING MOBILE BLOGGER AND CHANGED THE STATUS FROM PUBLISHED TO A DRAFT FOR SOME REASON**
Hello everyone! I'm back to trying to blog more than once every few months... and I have a finish.
Here is where I left off with Dimensions "Life is Good" last time...
I just had to do the clouds and backstitching. I thought stitching the clouds would be the easy part but they were a little tricky.
They were harder than necessary because if you chose the French writing the chart was confusing...
If you look closely you can see that they have superimposed the Spanish word for life, Vida over the French one, and they also did that with letters in a few other places. This left me to use the other languages to help me guess where the stitches might go. This kit claims to be for beginners and if I was one I would have probably been very frustrated by the error.
But after finishing the clouds the rest of the design finished up quickly and here it is!
As I was stitching this during the past few days I kept seeing "La Vie" and then my brain turned it into the song from the musical Rent "La Vie Boheme" (The Bohemian Life).
Anyways I started this kit on June 12th and finished it today June 24th. I was hoping to finish it in a week but I'm happy that I finished it in less than 2 weeks! Also this came with a black plastic hoop to act as a frame to finish this piece but I haven't quite decided how I want to finish it.
Happy Stitching all and I'll leave you with a few photos from my garden in Kathmandu!
