Bramble and the Rose - Finished

Bramble and the Rose - Finished.
Stitched on 25 count black lugana, one over one. Finished size is 9.25 inches square.
Stitched with Weeks Dye Works - Whiskey floss. Used all but three 18 inch single strands of the full 30 yards of 6 strand floss.

Thank you for all of the nice comments about this project.
I want to do several patterns with the whiskey on black, and hang them together.
So far I've completed this, and also Growth Rings, and plan on adding Quaker Floral, and a couple of the Long Dog patterns. I've stitched all the Cirque patterns on black with whiskey, and they all hang together, but this will be a second group.

My first start for the new year, and my first completion for the new year.

I think this is absolutely stunning. I have just bought the fabric and threads for my B & R but am sooo tempted to copy yours!! After reading your blog recently I bought some whiskey floss on Monday and am planning a small SAL on black fabric with Sandra (mollycaff)in a few months time. If my eyes can cope with the black fabric I may well stitch CDC. Well done :)

It's absolutely stunning! That gold on black is fabulous. And you're fast!

All your Cirques are gorgeous too!
