Gatsby Done

It turned out to be more difficult than I imagined, judging by how many times I had to rip and re-stitch a section. It turned out well; I prefer not adding most of the outlines as specified by the instructions. Here's the original for comparison.
As usual I'll sit on it and see if it needs "enhancements". I'm considering adding a color backing behind the eyelet stitches - but the rest of the piece needs to be backed with white. I'll see if I can make that work. Considering a frame now.


  1. Beautiful! I think I prefer your colors choices. The pink in the original seems too pale. Yours is very vibrant.

  2. The pink in both cases is the same DMC floss - it must either be the lighting or the photo rendition. That pink is DMC 353.
    Thanks for visiting!

  3. Beautifully done. Nice choice of colours.

  4. Absolutely stunning - well done!

  5. What an elegant piece of work! I bet it was satisfying to do.

    1. It turned out very well, specially for my first foray into whitework. Thanks for visiting!
