I have finished both of the bottom lines. The Just Kidding is a padded Satin stitch and the fourth line is tent stitches again. The red Silk Lame is sparklier than the photo shows. Next I need to get started on the Bitch row.
I have stitched all of the lettering in the first line in tent stitches in red Silk Lame Braid. I have plans the Bitch letters but the top and bottom line will be tent as they are so thin. The 3rd row is also going to be a different stitch.
Check out Jane's progress at Chilly Hollow too! She has more done than I do!
Next up is Frosty the Snowman from Christmas Ornaments, Part II, by Jean Hilton. I am doing the design to fit a box top and also have changed the colors. This is going to be lavenders and purple, with the center silver. Below is the photo of the original project in the book.
I did a few more rows around the edge of this design. I have decided that I am not going to add anymore of the pattern rows. There are 8 more rows called for in the chart but I don't want the piece that big. I want to turn this into a pillow and it is already 6 25 inches square. I will see how I want this finished next and show the final piece when I get it done.
I am past all of the lettering and so no more compensating! Woohoo! I should get to the bottom by next week and then start on the lettering! Check out Jane's piece as she is auditioning beads! https://chillyhollownp.blogspot.com/
