Here are two photos of the second canvas in my UFO Gingerbread series - almost done! The stitch guide calls for a "sprinkling" of red beads in the "sky" around the gingerbread boy, but I am not sure about that. I think it may detract from everything else going on. Let me know what you think. Although I'm liking it more now that I can see it on the computer! (Can I glue them on? - don't answer that one)
Actually, the real reason I am showing you this photo is because one of our SUPER creative ANG members, Becky, taught us how to make an outline without using a pen. You use black sewing thread and guess what??? you can adjust the background until you get it exactly right without ruining the canvas! What would Martha say? It's a good thing!! Or what would Ina say? How easy is that!!
We are hard at work on our first geisha girl - what a beautiful piece. More on that tomorrow
Keep looking up - I'm there...
