You may recall from my last post
that I've been busy stitching
I hinted about adding wool accents...
Simulating the cross stitched violets
into wool ones...
I found the perfect match,
in wool felt,
to create these tiny little wool violets.
about the size of a dime.
See the little bumblebee?
I think I am close,
perhaps just a wee-tad smaller
Love the texture that this will add to the overall piece.
And since this piece has added detail,
I thought adding some little eyelet stitches for the grass was in order...
When I chart a design, it is never a "one and done". How's that for some basketball terminology?
Any UCONN fans here?
If so, congrats!
They knocked my team out (ISU) in the Sweet 16, so I cheered them on.
Okay, back to stitching...
When I chart a design, I always have 2 or more versions of the design. They are all slightly different. Then I get to choose which one I like best. I am to the point of my stitching on this design that I need to decide if I am going to go with version 1 or 2. Do I stitch the sheep on this piece, or do I leave it off? Help me! Do you want a sheep or not!???
The overall size of this piece is what I would consider small.
Not sure if a frame is in order
or a finish into a little cupboard tuck or hanger.
Our snow is now gone,
we had a nice little shower last evening.
It smells like spring outside today,
Spring Violets coming soon...
and cross stitched ones!
I have been having issues with spammers commenting.
I have switched my commenting over to moderating them,
hoping to deter these spammers.
Anyone else having problems with this?
Have a good day,
