Finished! John Clayton's Paris
Sorry for not ironing the piece before photography, I just got too excited to share the finish.
- Start Date:
- Can't remember. January 2006? Maybe sometime late 2005?
- Finish Date:
- November 1st, 2006
- John Clayton International - Paris (Heritage Stitchcraft)
- This is a very dense piece. Every square is filled with at least one stitch. I love the fact that there is minimal back stitching. It is surprisingly complex and challenging to stitch at times, but it's also got nice bits of blocks of color up at the top. While you work on the more intricate parts, it's just a confetti of stitches and nothing looks quite right and it rather confusing. But when you step back to look at it, you see the details you don't see up close. How when you made the face of the cafe patrons, it looks odd and too dark, but when you look at it hanging from a far, it looks just right. I love how it turned out. I can't wait to tackle the next one on the list. I've got a plenty in this series to do! But the plan is to tackle all the places I've traveled to first, and maybe create a framed piece when they are all done.
