I cannot remember where I first saw this piece but decided I wanted to stitch this for two of my friends. It comes as an instant download pdf which you can then print. Buy Such Friendship.
Stitch count: 78W X 82H
The model is stitched on 32ct. Flax Belfast Linen using a variety of sampler threads over 2 linen threads. 2 specialty stitches are featured with easy to follow stitch diagrams.
I don’t stitch on linen so selected a piece of green Aida from my stash and used the called for threads.
After I completed the stitching I stuck the piece in a drawer because I was not sure how I wanted to finish it. Fast forward to March 2016 and I decided to try a new finisher Vonna Pfeiffer – The Twisted Stitcher. I had three projects I wanted her to finish. After a few back and forth emails, I mailed them off to her. More back and forth as we discussed her suggestions.
I had first thought to have Such Friendship finished as a cube but Vonna suggested I try a flatfold. I am so glad I did. Below you can see the front and side view of the piece after she worked her magic.
I can’t wait to get these back from her. They should arrive sometime next week. Now I am ready to stitch a second one for another friend.
