She's the Tops

Vanessa says she's running out of wall space to show off her cross stitch finishes.  A common problem, eh?  Some of us move up to higher fabric counts to get tinier pieces or give everything away.  Others, like Vanessa, opt for more creative, non-framed finishes.

She's made this fantastic table-topper from the Bramble and the Rose pattern.  It's stitched on Picture This Plus's Crystal Shale Belfast and fabulous silk from Hand Dyed Fibers in HDF Examplar Black Iris Bud & Bloom.  The fringed edge makes this a perfect, elegant addition to the room.

Thanks for sharing your finish, Vanessa!  We join in your well-earned Happy Dance... And we forgive you in advance if you become a little militaristic about where visitors set down their wine glasses.
