Sew Advent 2016 - Picture Gallery


How wonderful to see the completed Sew Advents for 2016. I know that it didn't look much in the early days but I think the overall result was worth that daily stitch!

Scroll through the following pictures to see some lovely finishes




Brenda chose to stitch 1*1 on 32ct raw Belfast linen with the recommended NPI silk threads




Claudia (ever the rebel 😉) chose to 1*1 on 28ct Lakeside Exemplar with HDF Redwork Red. She had to adjust the church steeple so it didn't blend in with the tree - well done Claudia




Cornelia stitched 1*1 on 32ct Belfast linen in Amsterdam Blue with NPI silk threads




Dede tells me her fabric is from Picture this Plus but is now not available. Apparently it was a test piece and they decide against reproducing it - such a shame - the background looks like falling snow! She used DMC white plus threads from Victorian Motto Sampler




Judy (another rebel maybe? 😉) also went with all red thread albeit a variegated (DMC 115). Her fabric is Zweigart 32ct dirty linen. Judy shortened the steeple to avoid it blending into the tree
  



Mariko stitched 1*1 on 32ct Belfast in Spruce Blue using DMC threads and finished as a very pretty ornament




Mary stitched 1*1 on Wichelt 28ct in Nordic Blue using DMC threads B5200, 898, 444, 702 and 321




Melissa chose 40ct silk weave in Sapphire Sky with Mo's silk thread in red and green plus DMC threads 




Melody stitched on 32ct Summer Breeze Hand Dyed Linen by Stephanie with silk threads





Last but certainly not least, Penny stitched not one but two versions! Her fabric was Smokey Pearl Cashel - her threads DMC. She hem-stitched both versions to finish.



What can I say? Each and every one of these Sew Advents are so beautiful that it would be very difficult to pick one out - so well done and thank you to the above ladies for allowing me to share their finishes on here. 

Thank you too to all that took part in the SAL. If you have stitched and finished Sew Advent 2016 and would like to share your work, please send me a picture and details of fabric and threads used and I will post in another gallery. 

Thanks for visiting - Happy New Year to you all
Take care
Carol

    Each one is gorgeous. I love the red versions which gives me an idea for 2017. Seeing these pictures reminds me that I need to take a photo of mine. Thank you again for creating such a beautiful design, Carol!

    Thank you Carol for another beautiful design! I had so much fun stitching this piece! I had to catch up because I missed your post! It didn't take long to catch up because I didn't want to put it down and then when I did catch up, I could hardly wait for the next day! Love seeing all the different ways everyone stitched it...I might have to stitch it again ;)
