* But only if you're wearing wet hiking clothes that are cotton instead of wool and you die of hypothermia. Although my HAED project, which I'm stitching in 87 colors of DMC, may yet kill me.
Happy Friday! This is not the HAED project, but it's a similar idea. Lots of colors of DMC, lots of confetti stitches, and an amazingly lifelike picture is emerging. It's tiny--about two inches by two inches when complete. It's "Nuttin' Else" by Blackberry Lane Designs, the same designer who created the rose and rosebud projects that I finished into Christmas ornaments. I will probably finish this guy as an ornament also, or perhaps a cupboard hanger. I'm stitchin him with one strand of floss over two on 45 count Legacy Linen in ivory. Using 45 count slows me down, because I'm forced to stab the needle instead of scoop--it's woven more tightly. It's a nice break from Sarah McPhail though!
Here's the cover of the design. I started it a few years ago and set it aside because I kept losing my place among all the confetti stitches. I hate having to search the chart to see where I left off and not being able to figure it out easily, but that's just a matter of impatience. I use a highlighter, which helps a little.
Peaches: "I am not the HAED project either but I am amazingly lifelike."
Bye! See you soon with another WIP.
