A relaxing evening at home stitching! Just me and the lil dawgs. It's been awhile.
I stitched more of Harvest Angel. I decided to cross stitch the pumpkins then cover that with satin stitches to make the pumpkins plump. Ususally I just stitch a couple layers of the satin stitches but I wanted the pumpkins to be exactly the pattern's size. Soooo, since I recently read somewhere about covering XS with satin, I decided to give it a go. The results are not too bad. I even like that the plumped areas are a little rough -- just like on a real pumpkin. It makes me smile.
In case you have noticed, this pattern is originally done all in XS but since I tend to get bored with just one stitch, I have adapted it using other stitches. I also plan to put some beads on this once all the stitching is completed -- gotta love the way beads add something to a piece.
"Unfortunately" I need to get to my LNS if I plan to finish this piece. I am almost completely out of the plum thread. Of course, I could always work on something else until I get there. I hear Mary Wigham whispering .....
