The Riddle is Finished!

I decided to be good and get "The Riddle" Finished up. This was such a fun stitch from beginning to end. I didn't get bored once! The only thing that bothered me were the tiny errors throughout the pattern. Nothing major, just enough to be an annoyance. So if you decide to stitch this, watch out for them!

The Riddle - finished at last! :)

The Riddle by The Drawn Thread Finished!
The Drawn Thread "The Riddle"
Fabric: 32 ct. Vintage Fawn by Lakeside Linens
Threads: Needlepoint Inc. and Gloriana Silks
Started: 6/22/09 - Finished: 7/23/09


Well, now I think I'll get back to "Finch Song." Or maybe I should be good again and work on "It's Berry Time?" Nah, I think I've been good enough for one day. :) Write soon!

  13. This "beast of a piece" is all done! Whew! It looks like so much work all laid out like this, but boy is it gorgeous! I think I like the section with the "kitchen chairs" (or my grandmother's kitchen had them), roosters, keys, and shears best!

  20. Glad you saw this one through. Your finish is stunning! The chart may not have been perfect, but your stitching certainly is!! And it took you, what, about three hours from start to finish?

  24. Absolutely stunning! I was at a loss for the Designer until I read it at the bottom of your post. It seems like a different look for The Drawn Thread and I like it. This may be a pattern to add to my stash. I have stitched a lot of her designs and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment...fast and fun! Now I know how you were able to complete it so quickly...there is no helping one's self where this designer is concerned. Enjoy Finch Song!
