Windows into my Heart: All stitched finally!



I have not been stitching much during this past week as been feeling rather tired and after a bit of rest, this morning I took Windows into my Heart out and finished the last section of it. This is a scanned version, hoping that it will be more accurate than a digital photo. If you click on the photo, it will be really big and you will be able to see some of the details better.
.
I had to make some adjustment to this last section as explained in my previous post, but it has turned out better than I expected it, so I am rather happy about it. I have done some random eyelets of different sizes but smaller than the ones on the left side since I had only 6 canvas threads to work with, which was really not much, but "à la guerre comme à la guerre" :-)
.
I still have to do the finishing using a Home Arts box kit, which was provided to me with the kit by Ruthmarie Hofmann, but that will be later when I have a bit more time and feel like doing some finishing. This is now the 4th item that I need to finish :-(
.
I am now thinking of doing the last section of Shalimar and that will be another one completed, but that also means that I will have one more thing to finish, a pillow. Oh well, won't worry about it for now.
.
I wish the weather was not as HOT these days as I am not a happy camper with those kind of temperatures (between 90 something and 100°F) .
.
Better go clean up my working space now that this project is completed :-)

Love the way you have done the little panel it looks perfect and when you get the gold lame showing through it will really sing, look forward to seeing the completed little box

Another finish, well done!

What's my next project? Not sure. Getting on with the goldfinches, maybe as the materials for the hardanger cushions/pillows I'm planning on doing over the summer have STILL not come. Bah!

This has come out really well. I lover the random eyelets with french knots, but I equally like the beige strip with the lattice work. The two balance each other beautifully.
