Oh Mr Darcy!

I finished "Mr Darcy" a wonderful design by Tanya (The Sampler Girl) yesterday. I stitched it in WDW threads (Pecan, Chestnut, Onyx, and Lancaster Red) on Vintage Cashel.

I altered the portrait a little, stitching it over 1 to give more detail. It still doesn't look too much like the gorgeous Colin Firth, but never mind.



Here are two pictures, one of the sampler, and one of the aforementioned Mr Firth for your delectation and delight ;)

Your finish looks great, especially stitching over one. I don't know but i am a bit scared to try that one yet.
Hope you are all having a nice weekend.
