Two More Crazy January Finishes!

Sheepish Designs Temptation
36 ct LL Maple Sugar
Called for WDW and DMC threads

Those little leaf skirts are adorable! And fun to stitch too! There were two rows-darker green underneath and med green on top.

Per usual, I made a few changes-
1. I only gave Eve an apple. No apple for Adam.

2. I cut out one line of hair on each of them because I thought their hair was plenty crazy without adding more.

3. I changed the border to a blanket stitch instead of a 4-sided stitch. I think I will finish this on wool with a blanket stitch too. (someday)


Just Nan Glow Tin Top and Humbug
Mystery 28ct linen
Mostly called for DMC & Kreinik threads

My changes-
1. I did substitute #8 Kreinik metallics for the #4 Kreiniks with a strand of DMC together.

2. I used brighter pinks-just because I like pink.

3. Decided to do the beading when I finish these.

OK-I'm checking off two more on my list. More updating on other projects later this week.

Okay, seriously??? That A & E is SOOOOO cool! I've had it in my stash for years but was afraid of the leaves. I'm going to have to bite the bullet and do them. The hair is just sooo cool. I love it. Great finishes!
