Finish: Calendar Girls – May

First finish of 2016: “Calendar Girls – May” by Liberty Rose. I completed this in one weekend and had a blast. This was my first embroidery piece. It felt like painting!

I only tweaked the color of the flowers on this pattern. Originally, all flowers were Gentle Art Antique Rose. I added the yellow and purple to the mix (DMC 725 and 3041, respectively). The french knot middles of the flowers called for Gentle Art Mayple Syrup, but I didn’t have that color so I used DMC 938.

Stitched on 28 ct. Flax Cashel Linen (9X13).

PS- I contacted the designer of this pattern for advice and SHE WROTE BACK! I love it!
