This is a long overdue gift which I will be getting out in the mail as soon as possible. It is Ink Circles Full Moon. I stitched it for myself on the recommended cream colored linen but for this gift to an English stitching buddy, I thought I'd go with this lovely purple linen to serve as a night sky background. I love this particular design and may very well stitch it again should I ever need a Halloween exchange. Keeping everything perfectly symmetrical calls for slightly tricky counting but the final effect is well worth the effort. I used a tri-color home-made twisted cord for this version: three purples, one of which matching the linen. And a beaded hanger using orange and lavender seed beads and gold bugle beads. I backed it with a greenish black satin finish double knit fabric which, though a somewhat odd choice, actually worked very well. All in all, I am rather pleased with the final finish and I hope Jo enjoys it once it is finally received.
