I started it when we went on honeymoon to Egypt, as hubby thought it would be a great idea to stitch something Egypt themed while we were there. We chose the chart together and rather than buying something new, we picked this one which had been in my stash for years!
For those that wish to know, the "technical" details:
Started: 30th March 2013
Finished: 30th January 2015
Stitched on 25ct White Magic Guide by DMC, 1 over 1 using DMC thread.From Heaven and Earth Designs, designed by Michele Sayetta
Original artwork By Ciro Marchetti
I am really thrilled with the outcome and whilst being quite confetti heavy due to all the detail, was still very enjoyable to stitch. Now I need to find a good framer as this is one I don't fancy trying to frame myself! If anyone knows of a good framer in the Manchester, UK area, I would be really grateful for the details!
By pushing to get this finished, I've neglected to keep up with the blog reading this week. I'm going to try to get through as many as I can today though.
Thank you for all the wonderful comments I've had whilst stitching this and I've really appreciated the encouragement.
