Kathy Barrick came out of retirement last year and hasn't disappointed since. I have a few of her newer graphs in my "you're next, I swear" pile, including "Heaven and Nature Sing".
I had my eye on this one for a while, finally picked it up recently at my LNS and just finished it.
If any of you have seen this piece, you'll note that I changed one of the colors and eliminated the dog. I didn't like the orange with all these other colors, so I switched it out for the mauve you see. And, instead of the rando dog chillin on top of the spool on the left, I just made a mirror image of the top spool on the right with a different color.
I stitched this on 40 count Antique Almond from Silkweaver. One of my favorite fabrics ever. I also used the DMC equivalents for this piece - the model was stitched in all Needlepoint Silks. No thanks. Since this is all solid colors, it wasn't worth it. Still looks awesome, especially on this fabric.
Now I really want to start working on one of the Hawk Run series that I have....or maybe just fix my major f-up in Shores of Hawk Run so I can actually finish it.........
