28ct Cashel Light Mocha
DMC, CC, GAST floss
The issue - back stitching causing the light to break (imo) funny and not show smoothly. But, if I straight stitch then the light is better but it doesn't lie correctly. So I couch. Maybe I need some lessons in timing. When to do which stitch.
The bottom birdhouse called for back stitching in 2 strands. imo, too thick and the light issues - but I straight stitched it and was unhappy. So, I frogged and tried again. Straight stitch in one strand with couching. Much better.
So happy MJ gave me this pattern. Now to have the hubster make a frame and hang this puppy up!
Closing in on another small finish. And then I think another crow pattern. It might be a Plum Street iirc. Oh, working on a SAL with Teresa. Tiny Garden Scissor Fob by Shepard's Bush. It's adorable. We will post our progress later this week.
It's nap time and I'm running late!
TTFN - (anyone going to the new Pooh movie this weekend? Planning to take Garin if he agrees to our *date*)
PS - Paula would like some feedback regarding PC Stitch and PC Stitch Pro. If you could stop by and let her know your opinions - she would appreciate it very much.
