Bitter Flower (version 2008)

Just finished this one up last night....I'd stitched it before and a good and dear friend fell in love with it, so I gave it to her :) But I loved it so much myself, that I knew it would have to be stitched again someday...



The above scan is pretty small, so I took some pics with the camera. The scan really shows the true colors however...



These are taken with natural light, no flash. Strange how the fabric color gets so washed out...



This one was a joy to stitch...both times ;)

Bitter Flower
Stitched on 32 count Barn Owl with WDW threads, two over two.

Now we both can enjoy this sampler :)

This is so pretty, and your stitching is perfection! How nice of you to give your first finish to your friend.

And I am the very, very lucky friend who Andrea so lovingly gave it to!!! I admire it every day as I pass it in my hallway!! It is an absolutely beautiful piece stitched like only Andrea (as in perfectly) can stitch!

Andrea-There are many things I think I will stitch twice but never seem too. I think this chart is in my to do pile so knowing that you stitched it twice means it should be a lot of fun to stitch once!
