kate_nepveu: quasi-botantical design stitched in green thread on cream fabric (stitching)
[personal profile] kate_nepveu
Since the spring, I've done the backing on that red-brown-gold knotwork bookmark, did a blackwork bookmark for a Con or Bust winner (no picture; it's the same as the last one here only in blue), and finished the third cross-stitch for the Pip's room—he liked the polar bears, but then he noticed that SteelyKid had THREE cross-stitches in HER room, so I promised to make him another.

Here's a lousy picture, which I couldn't get the color-correction correct on; the fabric is white:



[Image: cross-stitch of a red squirrel sitting on a tree branch, with "Red the Squirrel" written underneath]

I modified the pattern slightly by taking out the superfluous second "Red" and stitching it over-two, adding in quarter-stitches where appropriate to smooth out the edges.

Next up: Christmas present for this year; then kit up another snowflake bookmark for [personal profile] pameladean for travel but focus on finally finishing the big overdyed red dragon, so I can finally, FINALLY tackle the Wentzler Celestial Dragon. (Both of these were presents to me for Christmas 2008, so, they've been waiting.)

(This means I am firmly discouraged from making another set of Christmas ornaments for people as presents, even if I fell down a hole last night of Mill Hill's kits. I took copious notes instead.)
