Getting Ready for Shows
Been working my little fingers to the bone -- and instead of bony fingers, I have the following ready for my Fall craft shows.
The skeleton is all counted cross stitch. Don't you love his eyes and bow tie? This is done in the new DMC Light Effects thread. They have lots of nice colors but this flourescent green just called out to me.
This is my wacky bat. The colors are much brighter in person. That orange hat just screams at you -- LOL. He is quilted and appliqued using lots of metallic threads. My new machine (Janome 6600) is a dream at handling all the difficult threads.
