Presenting Mady's gorgeous RR

This is going to be a quick one, just posting a picture of the entire RR as promised. Mady's theme was 'Friendship' and here is what we stitched for her! I love the fabric that Mady has used, it's absolutely beautiful (hand-dyed fabrics are awesome!) and I think it's come together beautifully. Apologies for the poor picture, it's a little blurry, but I assure you, it is extremely gorgeous in person. It will be heading on its way to Canada tomorrow, unfortunately, it always takes ages from Australia, but here's wishing it a safe journey, and I hope Mady likes what she receives!

Here's another scan of my part with my "signature". It's the first time for me stitching one over one, it was fun! I love how it's so tiny and so neat, I don't normally sign off on my own pieces when stitching for myself, but I think it may be the way to go in the future, I really like it. I used lettering from Bent Creek's Wedding Row.

Also, for those who may be interested, here are the details of what I used in the design:
  • Pink in the border - Wild Cherry by Dinky Dyes (silk threads)
  • Yellow in the border and flower - Daisy by Dinky Dyes (cotton floss)
  • Blue lettering in main piece and signature - Icy Nights by The Dye Is Cast (cotton floss)
  • Purple thread - Berry Freeze by The Dye Is Cast (cotton floss)
  • Spool - Tiger Eye by Dinky Dyes (silk threads)
  • Needles and backstitched lettering - Soot by Gentle Art Sampler Threads (cotton floss)
  • Leaves - Crème de Menthe by Dinky Dyes (silk threads)
  • Flower petals - Secondhand Rose by Crescent Colours (cotton floss)
  • Red in heart and flower - Good ole' DMC cotton floss
Okay, I'm heading back to watch Federer serve for the championship!

Great work Eileen! It all came together very nicely :)
