Isn't she lovely? Isn't she beautiful?
I am working oh so diligently to finish her! I keep thinking, in the evening when I pick her up to stitch, "Tonight is the night I'll finish her! I just know it!" Then, after stitching as long and late as I possibly can, it doesn't happen! Don't get me wrong, don't be discouraged...there has been a significant amount of 'un-stitching' going on in the process!
I tried 5 different flesh shades and combinations of them before I was pleased with her
The hair is the 3rd set of threads and stitches...more about those
trials and errors when I post Lesson 3!
Once the flesh shading was right, I then did her hands four times.
The problem with the hands was they need to be 'holding' the basket,
and the basket is needle-woven! When they looked wrong, they didn't
look just a little wrong they looked HORRIBLE! Tee-Hee!
Isn't the Basket choc full o' Fall goodness?
This is one area that needed absolutely no 'un-stitching', HOORAY!
The basket and all of the goodies inside just stitched beautifully the first time
off the needle!
So, rest assured, She is nearly done, and I will be posting a HUGE celebration on that day!
I leave you with a bit more of my
Keep on Stitching!
Happy Autumn Everyone!
