BP Finish!



Fabric - the suggested Belfast 32ct Antique Ivory. Stitched 1 over 1. DMC thread, I started the centre medallion with the called for 356 and then improvised with my choices, as follows:

167, 300, 356, 400, 407, 436, 437, 632, 738, 758, 759, 779, 780, 801, 840, 841, 898, 918, 919, 920, 921, 938, 975, 976, 3064, 3771, 3772, 3773, 3776, 3778, 3781, 3790, 3826, 3856, 3859, 3860, 3861,
3862, 3863.

Started 18.01.09.  Third time lucky, discarded two starts as had problems with Rose of Sharon, Crescent Colours thread bleeding.

Finished 10.01.10. The initials are mine to my other half, BP for Beatrix Potter and HT for Hill Top, year 2009 as this is the year in which it was mostly stitched and the year when we visited the original sampler in Beatrix's Hill Top Farm in the Lake District.

I've really enjoyed this SAL, thanks to Hazel and to all the other stitchers who have posted and given encouragment to carry on, wouldn't have done it without you! Cheering on all you stitchers who are participating this year :)
