I chuckled when I saw Otto was Thursday's stitching. I really like the personality in this piece. Can you leave the chin whiskers unstitched? They look perfect as is to me (although what the camera sees and what is on my monitor are not necessarily what is there).
Otto is absolutely splendid!He has personality by the bucket-load.Can I ask a question which you may have answered in a previous post but I can't immediately find it?When you do French Knots on canvas, do you go up and down in the same canvas hole, being careful not to pull it through? Or do you stitich the knot over a thread ie up in one hole and down in the next one?Thank you.
Hi,Thanks for the reply on my blog. I've never seen French Knots done on needlepoint as a 'coverage' stitch, only as decoration on top of other stitches. Hence my curiority as to how to do it. I have a niece who is seriously 'into' sheep and would just love your picture. If you also like sheep, you might like my Gobelin that you can see at http://maulsbeingcreative.blogspot.com/2010/07/midnight-in-winter.htmlMy niece would like to take that one home with her, but it's too big to slip under a jumper :)
