Linda Barry stitched this tiny masterpiece on 40 ct. linen over 2. Once again, Vikki Clayton's Hand Dyed Fibers steal the show. What a lovely combo - it's Marque des Cercles and Garnet. This chart is called Growth Rings and is currently only available in the March/April 2009 JCS Magazine issue.
After completing the delicate stitching, Linda cleverly repurposed a framed mirror from Target to create this bold finish. It's always so nice to get such a high-end framing job look without paying through the nose! Any stitcher I know has a few better places to spend their money.
Trivia time: Did you know where the name "Marque des Cercles" came from? Vikki's silks all get such interesting names! This one is a tribute to Marc Davis and his use of DMC 111 in stitching the chart Cirque des Cercles.
