Snowman Update

September 11, 2015

OK…here I am again hoping that WordPress will let me post photos. I can not post what I have been working on, as it is a secret for now.  It is something very unusual for me and a pilot for one of my favorite designer. More on that at a future date.

I have been also making progress on my Snowman. This is my sit and stitch project, which means mostly tent or stitches that use only one strand of thread…thus no laying. I keep a project like this by my chair in the living room. I hate for my DH to feel like I am ALWAYS in my studio where my floor stand resides 🙂

IMG_0455I am slowly making progress on his hat. The stars are done in metallic and I discovered that I should do them before I fill in with the tent. There are three colors of green. My colors are not exactly the same as the painted canvas but I am using what I have in my stash…..fancy that.

IMG_0454Although it may be hard to see….I used one ply of Planet Earth silk to do scotch squares for the scarf. Each square is made up of 4 small scotch stitches. I used only one ply because I wanted the shading to show through.I did this at a guild meeting and the section is not quite done.

Today is 9/11 and I pray we always remember those who lost their lives on this date. We are so fortunate to live in this country. God Bless you all. More soon.

    Looking good! The pieces of silk are a neat little addition 🙂
