Faery Tales...

Faery Tales
 by James C Christensen
graphed by Heaven and Earth Designs
pattern cost is $19.00
stitch count 575 x 453
Brenda brought in her daughters work in progress to give us a sneak peak.
Can you believe this!
The gridded portion is done in pencil to help her keep track. 
This gridded section is one full page of graph!
Is this Jack and  the Bean stock? 
I must admit my kids are getting so old I have forgotten my fairy tales...
She stitched this over one on 25 count using one strand of cotton floss.
This design is ideally stitched over one on 25 count fabric for best results.
Just a little hint - Heaven and Earth designs look the best stitched on the smallest stitch count.  You can not stitch them on anything larger than 18 stitches to the inch or you will loose all of the details!

My Family Tree...

My Family Tree

Each time this is stitched it turns out unique.
But Don decided to take on the challenge for a dear friend with a LARGE family.

 He changed and customized the colors on each outfit.
  The entire project is stitched in silk
and dates back to 1818.
Good job Don!
