it was a fun stitch and a quick one too, and I was glad to see that I could pick up the pace again and not have issues with my hands.... but then I started looking more closely.... had to still work on regaining clarity of my stitches. It could be that the threads in the kit are not as good in quality but that coupled with my desire to just have some time for 'fun stitching' while watching Christmas movies on TV, resulted in one more Santa - started late in the evening on Christmas Day and finished yesterday except for the back stitches of the face. I finished that a few hours ago and then also tweeked the face of the first Santa...
here then are the results of these last two days - hope you too have had some time with your needle and thread.
Now right after I finished this second Santa I decided to change the eyes of the first Santa I had shared in the previous blogpost.
|I changed the color of the eyebrows and restitched the eyes ... better but still not quite there|
|So, I decided to just let the charted design be and add 'what felt right'... added pinks and reworked both eyes again...|
|So, this is the status of my linen remnant to date...||maybe one more tonight?|
