I’m working on a rather silly embroidery project – and I’m having So Much Fun with it! The problem is, I can’t “unveil” it right now. I have to wait until it’s finished. But in the meantime, I thought I’d share some photos of it underway. Can you guess what it is?
On this particular project, I’m trying to be somewhat diverse in my embroidery stitches. Originally, I thought I could manage at least 10 or 12 different types of embroidery stitches in it. Right now, I’m up to 10 types of stitches, with a few ideas for incorporating some more. So we’ll see if I can manage at least a dozen types of stitches, if not more!
Here goes, then:
Nothing too silly about this one: this is Santa’s hat underway. I haven’t done his face or beard yet. I’m testing my “curly wool stitch” in different applications with regular stranded cotton. So I’ve just filled the white space with stem stitch, and now I’m wrapping the stem stitch with stranded cotton, in “tubes” to form a wooly kind of ridgy look, if you know what I mean!
These guys are having a good laugh. The top one needs “something” still – perhaps his huge mouth should be filled in with black…. I’ll see about that later.
These fellows are a bit more sedate. I used bullion stitch on the clown’s hair instead of drizzle stitch.
Hm. I was able to get herringbone stitch in here (the red on the cap).
I still have some clean-up work to do on this pudgy baby. The white dusty stuff on the black cloth is from the silver pencil I used to draw out the face. Originally, there was going to be a pacifier there…. but it looked like a band-aid, so I skipped it!
And a parting shot, since Halloween’s just around the corner.
Welp – that’s what I’m working on right now! Can you guess what the finished product is?
