This little rascal is so cute. I wish I never had to sleep. I could just cross stitch all night! Here’s my progress as of quitting time last night.
Since I’m stitching this in hand, when I get finished working on it, it’s always wrinkled and I’m too lazy to go press it before taking a picture because it will just get wrinkled again.
To me, it looks like a pumpkin with a pointed chin and two legs coming out the right side of his head . . kinda like a spider.
The more I stitch, the better he will look.
The Persimmon floss arrived yesterday and here are the three skeins: Persimmon top, Fragrant Cloves in the middle and the DMC substitute for Persimmon on the bottom.
I kinda think I would have had better contrast if I had stuck with the DMC instead of Persimmon. I was expecting more variegation in the Persimmon. It’s fine though. Addie will love it and as I stitch more, I may see more variation in the oranges.
Those overdyed flosses vary so much from dye lot to dye lot. Sometimes they don’t even look like the same color so whatever was used for the sample isn’t exactly like what I’m using. But, Addie will love it and that’s what matters.
