Finished!!!  Woohoo!!!

So what now?  I have a Halloween Fairy pattern from Nora Corbett that I want to do, and I also have a large scale Super Mario pattern that my son is REALLY wanting me to get done for him.

2  Domestic Bombshell finished in Needlework: Completed Projects by LoriLou on: August 25, 2012 07:29:09 PM
While the hubby was watching football tonight, I finished the xstitch I've been working on.  Here it is!  Can't wait to get it framed and hung in my kitchen.  I really love the way it turned out.  All the black and gray got a little daunting, but I'm so glad I stuck it out and finished it.

I'm new to traditional embroidery.  I do well with satin stitch, but I really prefer the way a chain stitch looks for filling most things.  It gives it much more texture.  I stitch the chain along the edges and fill in the same way.  It really accentuates the shape more than I think satin does.  I'll take a picture of a weird little towel I'm working on that I tried it on.

Also surprised this one didn't get more answers.  *shrug*

Here's the hand towel.  It's not finished yet, but I am using the technique I described on the leaves of the lettuce.

Thanks Kitty!  I definitely recommend stitching one of the Day of the Dead skulls from that book.  They are so fun to do because of all the colors in there.  I finished this one not too long ago.  It went so much quicker than I thought.
