I’m really happy with this finish. I’ve done several TWs but honesty didn’t think I would do another until I was talking with Will about his Masters degree in Religion. He basically studied ALL of them and I asked him if there was one that was his favorite (he is a multi-faith reverend). When he said Egyptian mythology, an idea was born!
I knew of Teresa Wentzler’s Egyptian Sampler and I knew that I would stitch it for him. That was 2.5 years ago and its finally done! I’ve found some errors in this, but I’m choosing to consider them “unintentional personalization.” I had trouble tacking the rays down and keeping them straight.. but considering that I spent about 8 hours fiddling with them, they are as good as they are going to get!
This hasn’t been washed yet. My giant tub of orvus was tossed when I moved and had to order some that should be here early next week. I’ve found a local framer and picked out where this will hang in our home… right above his statues of Anubis and Wapawhets and other Egyptian objects.
TWs are certainly a lot of work and of all of them that I’ve stitched (non fantasy and no dragons) this is quickly turning into my favorite!
Now… what to stitch next? I’ve got some ideas, but whatever I pick up will be smaller and less complicated!!
