Candles and Fireflies Cross Stitch

Got this kit from Michael’s, it’s by Dimensions and called “Be a Light”.

Originally the jars had words on them, but I liked it without. It was stitched on 14 count Navy Aida, and the finished design is 5" x 7". My first project on a dark fabric. Definitely a challenge for the eyes.
Please excuse the reflection of @wittychild’s arm in the glass. :crazy_face: She was assisting me in submitting this post.

It looks great! I like the touches of warm, rosy pink light on the glass.

This is so lovely. The colors you chose just glow. I agree, it is better without the words. I think they would have distracted from the beauty of the image.

This is so pretty and a scan of that embroidery would make a beautiful notecard picture, too. Well done working on dark aida.
