March's Ornament

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

What I love most about Chatelaine's designs are all the gorgeous colors she uses. I chose Snowman's Way Home , for the shades of blues and turquoises against the navy blue belfast linen. The design calls for 28ct., which I normally stitch on, and I've stitched on 32ct before, which is why I chose the Belfast to try something and get more used to working on 32ct. I'm not to fond of stitching on Dark colors of fabric, but I think my snowman turned out cute. Instead of using the DMC gold metallic thread, I used the Gold Treasure Braid I allready had, using only one thread. I tried two threads and it looked too bulky. I'm hoping to have this done tonight. I know the one side looks crooked, it needs a good ironing. Dont'cha just love the color of his cap and scarf.
