I can't really show the entire challenge yet...but just to let ya all know I am working away at this piece! It requires a lot of hand stitching and is due the end of January/February. So.....
This was my start.....I did machine stitch with invisible thread (straight lines) some areas just so the piece is stabilized to start hand stitching.
In the circles, on red areas, I'm using Turquoise or lime green thread(s) and on the other areas I'm using red thread.
For outside of the circles, I'll be using matching threads to the background. I don't want to detract from the circles.
And this is my progress so far....again, not showing the entire piece...you get the idea!
I just love hand stitching....I know, I sound like a broken record. But I really, really do love hand stitching!!
So far, this piece is coming out as I wanted it to. There is tons of stitching left but, because it is so relaxing to do, I should be the most relaxed person around when it's finished! Let's hope!
Hubby was looking up movies to watch on Netflix! Is this an old age thing all of a sudden! I don't see us watching any movies on Netflix as we haven't even watched some of the new shows that are out right now (Bull, Designated Survivor, etc.). Too much football going on and he is in 2 or 3 Fantasy Football leagues. At least it gives me time to hand stitch! Or watch my own shows on Netflix!
