Here is the completed coaster I asked about earlier in the day. I adjusted the size down 3% just enough so it fit my hoop. Almost 35000 stitches and took 11/2 hours to stitch. The angel I am sure you all know from Sonia Showalter.


I think I was lucky got away with only 1 broken needle this first time! I also hope I sized the picture correctly

Thank you, I was a bit scared to try so just kept going down 1% till it fit the hoop. I think I am going to do another for my Niece and her husband as they were just married this spring. I will add their names and the year.

It looks worth the long stitching time. Lovely work, I still think Sonja Showalters angle of light is the prettiest of all.

Very pretty. I have the angel but have not stitched it out yet. I did another one but gave it away.

I think next time I will try and figure out how to do 2 at a time. Being new to this I am trying to take it slowly.

Louise, what a great first job - especially downsizing your design - these both look wonderful and I am so happy to see that you got the picture and the project up as well - you are doing wonderfully - keep it up. *4U Shirlene

Thank you Shirlene, I don't think I would have had the courage to try without all the advise I have picked up here. I also did my first applique project, the small turkey from San Francisco Stitch. It is so Cute!

Thanks, I think I am hooked, but it will have to wait as I am getting ready for the fall craft shows here in Vermont. I sell soft sculpture babies.
