Some thoughts about my New Start 'Dunlee Darnum' by Tilton Crafts

Hi guys

Yes, you heard it. If you read my New Year post about my attempt to control new starts, then ...forget it. Coz I CAN'T Lol. I was enabled to stitch this

I believe this artwork speaks about me the most. I love every single detail there and there is no reason I leave it in queue any longer. I've never stitched Tilton Crafts before so this is also a chance for me to test stitch it. Similar to 'Magic Fire', I use tent stitch 2 over 1 on even weave (28 count) to see how good is the coverage. 

This chart contains 45 colors with 30 pages to stitch.

Here are the colors (mostly grey scale)

Here is the first block with 10 colors:

 First 5 columns on the first page:

Page 1 completed:

Now you can see several bottles on the shelf. I thinks tent stitch with 2 strands makes a good coverage. The details are great either. The only thing I am so afraid of is that it looks too dark.


  1. Gorgeous new start! I can't believe how much progress you've made already! Looking forward to watching this one grow.

  2. Great new start!! It is dark but that's the style of the design :) It looks fantastic

  3. Great start! I love the design *___*

  4. It certainly looks dark...but, one of the very nice designs! I love it :)

  5. Beautiful start, looks like it's going to be amazing when completed. I don't think it's too dark as you are stitching the bit in the shadow. It will make the little man stand out in the sunlight. Happy stitching. Alicia xo
