So, I'm still a newbie to this needlepoint thing that I am loving so much. I seriously can not stop myself from picking up the needle, floss and fabric and st-st-stitching! I have made these gals for some coffee cup cozie thing-a-ma-bobbers! I've just done the stitching so far, haven't sewn up the actual cozies yet, but wanted to share. The "Hot Stuff" was my guys brilliant idea. I was staring at her and couldn't think of a name and he said "Well, if it's going to be for a coffee thing, Hot Stuff. What would I do without him. I also made "Sugar" and will do a "Cream", that one cracks me up! I didn't design her, did the writing free hand on the banner though. So I just used backstitch on these, using 1 and 2 strings. I kinda did a different direction backstitch, going up and then down on Sugar's hair for a diff look. Hope you like 'em!
