Hello and welcome 🙂
This Friday I linked up to Friday Night Sew In over at Wendy’s blog Sugarlane Designs, she usually suggests some naughty chocolatey treat for us to indulge in while we’re stitching away but I was good and resisted, mainly, it has to be said, because I wasn’t organised enough to make anything 🙂
I thought I’d have a final push with my friend’s cross stitch and I’m very pleased to announce that the outlining didn’t take as long as I thought it would resulting in me actually finishing it – whoop, whoop 🙂
So without further ado here it is.
I love the way the sky has turned out, while I was stitching it the pale grey looked the same as the white but now you can see how it defines the clouds – all plump and cotton wool like 🙂
I’m always amazed at the difference outlining makes, the flowers now look like flowers rather than ‘blobs’ of colour!
and the cross seems 3 dimensional now.
If you’d like to see what others have been getting up to in the Friday Night Sew In then the list of participants can be found here.
On with the next WIP 😉
Until next time,
