Mountmellick Framed

I finished my Mountmellick piece that I was working on with Airdrie Branch EG,
and finally I got around to washing, damp stretching it and framing it up so here it is.

  I'm quite pleased with how its turned out
I did enjoy sometimes it was heavy going with the thick threads through the tightly woven fabric but the effect is lovely.
I did take some pictures as I progressed but forgot to do a post on them so here are some closer views

 a darker picture to show the texture.
This pattern was designed by Katie Pirson and featured in issue 68 of Stitch EG magazine

I'm working on another little Mountmellick piece,
this time my own design which I will show soon x

Yvonne this has come out beautifully! Mountmellick is tough on the fingers thanks to the fabric and thread combination but your textures and beautifully sculptured effects are perfect! I'm setting up and album of students/kit users work from my designs and would love to use these. If your happy for me to could you email me the images to
Thanks and fab stitching!
