|My Assistant is helping by taking a nap |
(so he doesn't get entangled in embroidery floss).
Now you can see Monster with both his eyes!
|The right eye is bigger than the left. Planned that way, of course.|
This is what I might call the "Winging-It Stitching".
In other words, I will let my hand and fingers do the creating as the stitching progresses.
What comes of it will be a surprise.
|Now I am beginning to add some detail to the ear.|
I have outlined my future stitching line with the floss, and will now complete the process.
This stitch type is called couching.
HERE is a couching stitch instruction site. Very simple to do.
|Here is the work so far.|
This is as much as I have time for today.
|Up close and personal with the Couching Stitch.|
Tomorrow I have some new ideas for the backing piece for Monster...I visited my closest local thrift store this afternoon and they were having a 50% off sale! Lucky me. This is always an opportunity for inspiration and great purchases. Don't miss tomorrow's blog.
See you then.
Have a Happy Weekend.
