This is 3 cats
This is the current section I am working on.
Not sure that I like it
Color is so-so, stitch is sorta ok
doesn't quite match
thread is a pain in the neck (it's rayon)
no matter what, it doesn't lay flat
I've "waxed" the thread, made it wet, etc
still frays and still rolls
Notice the yellow next to it. I found a combo of two threads that matched exactly.
The leaves were supposed to be white but I changed it to green.
I have red beads going in where the red spots are now.
This is the long view of the section.
The blue "hives" are in tent and will have white thread on top of them
debating between 2 stitches vs a bead (large)
The color of the "hives" will be the same as the blue
on the very bottom - see first photo.
It is different in color and type of thread than the blue triangles on the this side.
What do you think of the color?
of the stitch (Mosaic)?
of the thread itself?
Progress is being made
When it goes to get framed, I've decided to put something dark
behind it so the white stands out better.
HOMe is stitched in actually.
This is/was an EGA project. It is currently unstitched.
This was created using crayons, an iron and stencils.
The background will remain unstitched
the heart will be stitched.
Another EGA project.
Fabric covered box.
I opted for two colors.
That's it for my updates.
The 3 cats have taken most of my time lately.
The yellow area got ripped out twice (not all of it)
I only did small patches to test colors, etc
One of the things eliminated was the rayon thread.
Lots of WIPs never got touched this period nor will they
over the next three weeks which is a really busy time of the year for me.
Check out the rest of the group
and welcome the newcomers
