Tree of Stitches is done!

Finally finished up after slacking off for a couple of days. :p

The full tree (colors are most accurate here):

And a closeup of some of the stitching, but the color is a bit too yellow and I don't feel like opening Photoshop to correct it. XD

I think I'll have to revise my goals for this month, because I've been convinced (quite easily, thank you :p) to start Sunflower Fairy by Nora Corbett as a gift for my GF's mom, since her birthday is in about a month.  That means I really only have about three weeks to finish in order to have enough time left for framing.  Soooo, here's the floss toss.  The design calls for Valdani for everything, but I'm substituting other overdyed threads from the stash as needed.

As you can see, the linen is a bit too light and too grey, so I tea-dyed it to be a little darker and more brown.  It didn't really get the mottled effect like I was hoping, but at least it's a better color now. :)


  1. Oh, you finished your tree in no time, and it's beautiful! The Sunflower Fairy is a cutie too, those colours are gorgeous. Have fun stitching it!

  2. I love your tree of stitches, I really must start mine this month!
    The Sunflower fairy is gorgeous too, I saw her on FB recently. If you want to sell the magazine when you've finished ... or even just rent it out for the time it take me to stitch her!

  3. Congratulations! Your Tree looks spectacular!

  4. I agree with Blu, it is spectacular!! Love the close up shot of the stitching
