Winter is finished!

It’s done! I started Teresa Wentzler’s Winter Carousel Horse in July of 2000. I’ve worked on it off and on over the last 12 years for a total time stitched of 150 hours. The fabric is 40 ct creme Linen from Germany. In order to stitch using a single strand I had to do a color conversion in order to eliminate the incredible blends that Teresa uses to texture her pictures. The easiest way to accomplish this was a color conversion from DMC to Anchor since there was more variety in the Anchor families back in 2000.
I cut the linen into 4 pieces so I could do all four of the seasonal horses on the same fabric. Last year, I concentrated on the ponies and got all 4 started and worked on at least a little. For the WIPocalypse this month, I’m supposed to work on my Spring Pony but I think I’m ponied out for a little bit. I want to work on something without lots of confetti stitching. I think I’ll get out a Needlepoint canvas for awhile.
