I decided to pick up the Sublime Stitching pillow cover to get a little more done on it. After all, this SAL is meant to help us get our projects finished and that one has been stalled for some time. Guess what? I couldn't find it. Anywhere. I'll bet you can relate. I put it away so neatly and safely it completely disappeared from the studio. Or at least that's how it appeared. I did eventually locate it, right where I looked the first time. I just hadn't remembered putting it in the cute little bag it was in!
I believe the last time you saw this project it looked like this:
Now it looks like this!
Those scallops below the foxes kept saying "buttonhole stitches" to me so I gave in to the prompting.
With French knot centers. I tacked down most of the cross stitches with a tiny horizontal stitch. Officially that turns them into some other kind of stitch but I'm too lazy to look it up.
I added some detail to the acorn caps with a few plies and straight stitches too.
A person could really get carried away adding details to this piece. Probably won't be me, but it's a possibility. 😉
We check in every three weeks in this SAL. Here's the list of the others who are participating. We all work on our own projects so there's a variety of needlework to be seen. If you'd like some motivation to get your projects moving along just leave Avis a comment. Enjoy!
