Completed Project Add: Cross Stitch - Alluring Sorceress

I'm in a crafting slump, so I'll update with an already complete project.  I will post the item on the blog then add it to the completed projects pages.

This is Alluring Sorceress.  I started her back in 2007 and finished her in 2008.  The chart was created by Dimensions Crafts as a "Charts and Charms" pack. They supplied the chart, and charms, you bought your own floss and fabric. This chart has been discontinued. There is another piece that matches this same style called Midnight Enchanter. It's next on my non HAED to do list, of ones that I haven't started already.  So you'll be able to see that one from start to finish.

This one was really quick until I got to the back stitching and cording.  My first time cording, it was a bit of a pain.  But it turned out beautiful so I guess I should stop complaining.

I also messed up and used the wrong color in a couple of places.  I had done too much to go back and change it without losing my mind.  After looking it over with my mother, with e-mailed photos, and my DMC sample card this is how it ended up looking.  Can you see where I messed up?  It's like Where's Waldo without knowing what you're looking for.

This was the first piece I hung in my current place, and was the only piece for quite a while.  I have this really cool burgundy wall that I knew she'd look great on, you can kind of see it at the edge of the photo, but I cropped most of it off.

  1. This is wonderful.

    Sorry to be forward, but I started this one a few years ago but I lost the chart when I moved house.
    Is there any chance you still have it?

    I would be so beyond grateful.
