I actually thought I’d posted this yesterday so this is actually a day late. I shared the photo in the Facebook group yesterday but forgot to share it with all of you. Here is my completed design for this month on the Changing Season’s Mystery Stitch-A-Long designed by and hosted by Fox and Rabbit.
I’ve seen a lot of variegated threads being used for this, but I’m liking my solid colors. Trying to keep the designs simple. The colors I used were DMC 744, 972, and 3841. The green was something I had in my stash without a tag on it. Next month’s green ight be something lighter to go with summer, but we’ll see.
The lettering was a bit fiddly, and I don’t think my “S” was a defined as it should have been. I’d wanted to do it in satin stitch, but it was coming out like a blob so I frogged it all and just went with the chart. I’m wondering if it needs a bit of seed bead bling added…..
I’m actually wondering if I could add some bling to the vase with a charm or a rhinestone or something. It just seems a bit flat and boring to me. Maybe I’m wrong. What do you folks think? Add some bling or leave it be?? If bling, what should it be?? I’m open to suggestions and ideas. I’ll even do backstitching if it will bring more to this part.
I’m eager to see what May brings, maybe one of the smaller squares will get filled in next since May isn’t a summer month. I hope so as those empty blocks are begging me to fill them. 🙂
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!!
