Cross Stitching Funage!
I was finally emailed the PDF for Imbolc and took no time to start it. I've actually completed it, on Confetti. Its not a complicated piece, mostly back stitching. As the background is a light yellow, the wording "IMBOLC" doesn't show up very well so I've outlined it with green (703). I tried it in white first, but that didn't make much of a definitive difference. Clearly the green does. I have to wait to post a completed photo until she receives it.
Hippo-cala-fraga-listic….x stitch Al a ghost is. ;)
My eldest son’s favourite animal. The Hippo. I started this for him on the Mystic aida. Its almost a denim colour. Dark navy with lighter leaf like imprints faintly added. The whole stitching part though is done in a single colour of light gray (dmc 762).
I have found that these speciality dyed fabrics are a lot softer then Charles Craft aida. It means a hop is necessary, and that I have to be careful not to pull my stitches to tightly as it makes big holes :(
