2 years of on and off stitching on this, thousands upon thousands of stiches, probably 100+ hours total hand work, and my Rose Trio is finally done!
It turned out mostly as I imagined it. I did make a few changes along the way, adding in a couple more greens and a brown to the stems, and adding some extra stitches at the end to the pink rose to get it more in line with what I wanted. It’s amazing how a few stitches (or 20) can slightly change the look.
There are a few wrinkles I need to steam out then get it framed, but it is DONE! FINALLY!
Am I excited? You bet! Now to pick my next needlepainting project.
My current thoughts are drawing this out and needlepainting it:
Or doing this one as needlepainting:
Or a few other ideas that I have pictures of buried deep in the almost 3,000 pictures on my phone. Decisions.
