I had thought I was absolutely finished but then when I took this picture I saw there was a row on the right side border that I haven't crossed yet!! There might be more uncrossed stitches so I'd better look carefully. Very carefully.
More candy wrapper stitching. Certainly glad for friends that are saving wrappers for me.
This month's guild stitching project is to make a 9" x 9" whole cloth piece. Using a light box I traced flowers and curly cues onto the cloth. Then using acrylic paint, textile medium and a small brush I began to paint.
This is my completed painted design. Next I will put a pellon backing onto it and begin to outline stitch the flowers and stems using running stitches, back stitch, chain or maybe even cable chain. Not sure yet. I should be working on Christmas gifts but this has gotten me side-tracked.
I didn't have an onion mesh bag for the suet I made for the birds but this Downy woodpecker didn't mind that I used an avocado mesh bag instead.
Have a most wonderful day and thank you for stopping by :)
