It's been quite some years since my last blog post. It's also been a long time for me that I stitched. And all of a sudden my head and fingers were convinced: it is time to stitch again. And maybe it is time to write a blog post again. So here are two finishes I did this year.
First a small one, a kit, that I bought ages ago. Lanarte 34781, View.

Finally my Call of the Raven is back from the framers. I chose a simple frame and no pass partout. The stitching part is huge, so I didn't want it to get bigger.
Until this afternoon I didn't know where to hang it. Not in my living room, that was for sure. Too big, drawing too much attention. Guess where it is now? In my living room LOL
Here it is!

Started in January 2007 and working on and off during all those years I now reached the end. The last stitches are done and I am happy and a bit sas at the same time. This has been my companian for such a long time! It travelled with me on vacations and short trips. I still remember how happy I was, when I discovered I stitched a hand! I remember running to my husband and showing him the completed hand, so delicate.
Here she is: Call of the Raven.
Stitched from December 2006 until July 9th, 2017.
90 colours, 270.000 stitches on 25 ct evenweave, one over one.

At Nieuwpoort a wool festival took place. I took a class to knit slipstitches and make a button. Loret Karman, as I already knew, is a wonderful teacher. She asked me to make a combination with slipstitches and bohus stickning. I did, but I think it is a bit messy. I like the button a lot more!
