After a 3 week sabbatical from stitching (I have been ill, and unfortunately in too much pain to stitch) I have finally finished Silver Moon Tea by Mirabilia!
Stitched on 32ct Belfast Silvery Moon, naturally. I substituted the white in the steam for 032 kreinik and changed "Earl Grey" to "Lady Grey".
When I bought the beads I thought, this can't be right!? In the end I loved the combination, and even got to use my favorite beads (the green ones in the moon)
I had to backstitch the face twice, I found the 2 strands looked too thick. In order to achieve a more dainty nose Juls (my SAL partner on SM tea) suggested I back stitch using one strand going over the length twice. Not only did the strands lay nicer, I had more control and could chose to use 1 or 2 strands in certain areas.
