Here are four versions of Claire and William. Starting on the left are the original two figures made for the Red House. Next come the most current figures working hard to get 'Fables To Go' up and running. Then you see Claire and William on the 'Once Upon A Time' casket.
I finished the border with the same dark blue as the sky. I knew I wouldn't have enough to finish the border and I knew I wasn't about to run to the store to buy a skein, so I used a darker shade for 2 rows inside the edge.
This shows the two blues better.
The three green lines at the bottom of the heart looked unfinished to me so I added little red tulips to the tops of the 'stems'.
In an earlier post I said the design was straight out of my notebook. I misspoke. Here is the actual original drawing.
I don't remember when or why I made the changes.
Here are the designs side by side.
How is you Stitch ALong coming along?
