really get the blood flowing. Like when you can’t find a bag full of buttons, accessory packs and other assorted goodies. I just about pulled my entire guest craft room apart looking for the leftovers from Victoria Sampler’s Crimson Fire because I wanted the Kreniks from it to stitch the Angel’s sword on ATS. Turns out I didn’t like them and ended up using some Petite Treasure braid (that was not missing and I didn’t need to tear the room apart to find *sigh*).
Hmmm. Bad picture. And this was the best of 5 I took. I stitched the sword with PB02, the chart called for one of the gold hue GAST but I was stealing MelissaC’s blinged out sword idea. The sword also needs to be flaming. Why? Because my research said so. Wiki Eden, Wiki Cherubim. I backstitched around the sword with some red Petite Treasure braid and filled in with quarter stitches in an attempt to make the blade look smoother. Not sure how much I like this. I think it’s ok. I’ll want to take a better look at in a couple of days in daylight. A little distance from the stitching usually helps.
Tomorrow: yard work & BBP.
