The Stitcher - Day 3

My progress so far. I did not stitch on her last night, I was really pooped and hit the sack early. The hard part is over I think, and now it's basically the words and leaves and such, so it should not take me too long ;) Any day now... :D

The major part of her dress was stitched with a French Silk thread that Lili was so kind to enclose. I've never stitched with silk before and what do you know, it was a wonderful silky experience. I can see what the raves about silk threads are all about now! :D And for the darker portions of her skirt I used Carrie's Thread Raspberry. As always the camera is not doing justice to the colours, but I hope the next post you read from me will be a finish and better pic!


Comment Notes: Thank you dear friends for your encouragement. Jeanne, thank you for swinging by, I couldn't find your blog to leave a comment, the Thread Winder tutorial can be found here. Have a great weekend everyone and stay safe.
