Before and After

Treasured Tulips (Nutmeg Needle) before the great ripping:



















I finished last night. I'm putting this one aside until next time.

Can you explain the great devastation? I'm not able to figure it out from the photos. Thanks.

This is beautiful! Tragic that you had to rip all of that out. I looked for a pic online of what this will look like finished, but didn't find one. Yours looks beautiful!

The first thing I have to admit is that I don't know left from right. So, it was the right side--flower and leaves--that had to be completely taken out. (When that picture was taken, I had already taken out the leaves on the bottom.) Then I had to stitch it all again. It took up the whole ten hours I had planned to spend on it.

Michele, the inner portion has more pulled thread and hardanger work. And I just noticed you can't see the ABC that is at the top of the middle bit. I guess we'll have to go buy a printer/scanner/fax so that I can scan the photo that I have!

Thanks, Anna for the description - it will be beautiful when it is finished!
