However it is now stitched up and ready to move on to it's next stitcher.
I stitched it on a hand dyed fabric from KLT Charting called January's Boy a lovely mix of blue and white giving the impression of a cloudy summer sky. I stitched it with the recommended Crescent Colours hand dyed flosses. I would say however that Magnolia Blossom, Roasted Chestnut and Queen Bee had no visible variegation that I could see and any future projects that call for these threads I will be substituting the DMC. The Clay Pot and Weeping Willow threads had a subtle variegation which I was happy with.
There was a group of flowers that was charted to have petals stitched in Magnolia Blossom (the white thread) with long stitch and french knots. I tried to stitch them as charted but they weren't working out for me so I just made up my own little flowers with a combination of Magnolia Blossom and Clay Pot and was pleased with the outcome.
Here's my finish:
