My stitched bits

Easter Freebie Time!!!

I designed this chicken mandala somewhere in January and the idea was that I would first stitch it before putting the chart on-line.
Unfortunately I'm afraid I won't have enough time to stitch it before Easter.
And if I would find the time, it 'd be finished too late for any of you to stitch it on time!
So I decided to put this design up without a finished version to accompany it.
At least now you still will have time to stitch it before Easter is at our doorstep, if you like it, that is!
I'm sure I'm going to stitch it too, but I can't figure out when!
This design needs to be stitched on some dark 14 count aïda.
As you can see in the picture above, it has some white stitches around the eggs, the chickens and the flowers.
I haven't found a way to reproduce these white stitches on the .pfd file that shows the chart. So you will have to use both the picture and the chart to stitch it correctly.
Almost all the white stitches in the key of the .pdf chart don't have to be stitched! Just the ones as shown in the picture.
I hope it's not too difficult for you to see and stitch!
I have the file in PCStitch format, which shows it clearly on a dark background. If you would want it, you can mail me and I'll send it to you. Don't forget you will need to be able to read PCStitch files!

Here is the link for the chart and key:

I really am curious to know what you think of this design as it's a bit different to what I make usually. I rather like it a lot myself! And you?

Give me some feedback, I'd appreciate it a lot! And of course I'd love to see it stitched! Even if it's finished before mine!

Enjoy and thanks for the visit!

Hallo Danielle.

Ook deze is heel erg leuk. Ik weet niet of ik genoeg tijd heb om deze voor de Pasen af te hebben maar als ik tijd heb stuur ik zeker een foto.

Bedankt Danielle en een fijn weekend gewenst van Marion
