I feel like such a slacker for many reasons, one of which is because I haven’t been updating my cross stitching posts every week like I originally intended.
Here is the last picture that I posted from June 19th:
Here is this week’s picture:
It doesn’t seem like it, but there are a million different colors in that basket of flowers. This is a Stoney Creek pattern so they like to use a lot of colors in order to add detail. It looks nice when it’s done, but it’s a pain to stitch because there are four stitches of one color here and maybe two over there. I have some backstitching that I’m doing on the basket, but I can’t completely backstitch the basket until I have done the wings. I’m not looking forward to them because it’s going to be white and various shades of white/ecru to make up the wings. Then I’m going to go back over it with the blending filament to make them shimmer. It will look gorgeous, but I’m not looking forward to it. lol
