Two Seasons - Golden Autumn and Spring has Sprung

Two Seasons - Golden Autumn

Two Seasons - Spring has Sprung
The pieces in the series "Two Seasons" are now stitched.  I like the way they turned out.  I don't think you can see in the photos the metallic threads but both pieces have  shine to them.

I kicked around the idea of sewing them together, back to back, but that was not my original conception. They need to be side by side so you can compare them. I'm not quite sure what I am going to do with them. I may finish them off with a hardanger edge so that they can be cut out. The only problem with that is then the backs are readily visible and, let's face it, blackwork backs aren't like hardanger backs! I may just sit on them for a while until I decide. They definitely need to be washed though....the pencil outlines are still way too visible. I don't think there will be a problem with that though as the thread is all DMC. I don't think metallic thread fades.  Susan....am I write about that??

These are absolutely wonderful. Are they your own, original design?
PS To the best of my knowledge, metallic threads don't fade.
