The finished pieces are 12" in diameter, stitched on "Christmas Red" linen and mounted in wooden hoops I painted white. I finished the back with blanket-stitched felt, which turned out reasonably tidy.
There were no half stitches, but there were some unique stitches that added interest to the project:
And as with a lot of designs, the backstitching and beads really made the piece sparkle!
I'm so pleased with how they turned out ... but also pleased to be able to refocus on my big stitching project.
