TGD-097 Ashes (of difficult patterns)

Turquoise Graphics and Designs - TGD097 Ashes of Difficult Patterns

I took a break from my usual designs and decided to create something fun and different! I am sure we’ve all experienced frustration over a difficult pattern at one time or another. Some of my longest undertakings took several years to complete (stitching on and off!) And, yes, I have another multi-year undertaking hogging one of my scrolls right now! This design uses full cross stitches with a delightful set of colors from The Gentle Art threads.  Long stitches are used to outline the urn.  The background fabric is a beautifully hand dyed fabric which adds such dimension to the finished work!
