OCF – CHAT 043 – Myst VIII – Evening in the Park

by Kate Andrijic on 32 ct Zweigart linen – ‘Cobblestone’ Colour: “It’s now been almost 50 years of stitching, and I never seem to tire of it. In 2010, I ‘discovered’ Martina and her “Chatelaine Designs”. It changed my whole emphasis on what I wanted to stitch. Each of her designs I have chosen requires over 600 hours of stitching – and I love each and every minute I spent on them. To date, I have completed 14 of the designs – and have a few more awaiting me in the stash cupboard. This design, “Mystery VIII – Evening In The Park” was my first one and started me on this marvelous journey. Thank you, Martina, for your wonderful gifts to the stitching world! And, Thank You, Ela, for continuing your contribution in keeping Chatelaine Designs going!!”

This design depicts the muted, darkened colors of the early evening. Lights are shining on the pathways already, and the swans swim calmly on the ponds. You can recreate this mood in stitching this design with a multitude of different threads and beads – cross stitches and Special Stitches.

Beautifully wrought iron gates are on all four sides, and the first snowflakes fall into the darkening night.

The mere design size is 279 x 279 stitches.

Please note that parts 8 & 11 are not marked as such. There are no separate instructions for this part but the chart is complete.
