I promised I'd show my March ornament after the official posting date my other ornaments can be seen in the 2013 Ornament tab above and here it is:
|Sunday Spooky SAL 2011 by San-Man Originals|
Stitched on 28-count Haunted by Picture this Plus with DMC
I spent the better part of two days beading part 1 of Serengeti. I still have quite a few Delicas to add but am glad to have completed as much as I did. I was holding my breath while beading as I am stitching this on a 32-count fabric and Martina recommended that it be done on 28-count due to the heavy beading. I was prepared to leave a few beads out if necessary, but I am happy to say that it wasn't needed. There is some crowding but I think it will be straightened out during the stretching for framing step. Talking about framing already! How optimistic is that?!?!
Here's my before:
And here's what it looks like today: the fabric color is closer in this one but still a bit dark.
|Serengeti by Chatelaine|
Stitched on 32-count Summer Sky Jobelan with recommended fibers and beads.
I have started a Little House Needleworks ornament for my next ornament and will put Twilight of the Tsars on the frame for my weekend stitch.
