Just a little project to welcome cooler weather which means fire pits!  When it's 100 degrees even at night here in Las Vegas, you look forward to the fall when you can light a fire and cuddle. Wink  This is an Urban Threads pattern from their year wheel series.




Lots of close ups.  Wink




This one ended up sideways. LOL!


The stitches used for this project were, satin, chain, running, and french knots.
Thanks for looking!

Hi,

Beautiful! Your filling stiches are so regular. This is something I really struggle with. What kind of thread did you use? It looks like it might be cotton, rather than the 6 ply embroidery floss.

To answer your question: I used just plain old DMC floss.  When I'm doing fill stitches, I use the sharpest, smallest needle I'm comfortable with (quilter sharps usually) and then only 2 strands of floss.  It seems to lay flatter and come out more even that way.  For me anyway. Wink
