Hooray a finish!

Always feels good to have a finish especially when you are struggling on a piece. 
This is my first over one thread finish and I had a little trouble with the thread twisting on me and not laying straight so the stitching is not as neat as I would like it to be however I have since learnt some tips which may help me on my next over one project, we shall see. 
Love this fruitful series from The Hearts Content, hope you do too as I have a few more to stitch, lol!

The Heart's Content - Fruitful IV - stitched over one thread on 28 count. 

I have another Sampler I have almost finished, this one a reproduction Sampler from The Scarlet Letter, hope to show you soon.

  2. Beautiful work, especially such solid stitching. Over one is very rewarding though as it looks so tiny and compact.
