It’s a lantern. What you thought my first shot would be a whole fairy? I started on the far right hand side. I’ll stitch the lanterns and then move on to The Leader of The Pack Fairy. I like it, I think the colors of the lantern look very bold and glowy on the the fabric. I hope the fairies look as good.
I spent most of this weekend working on Caribbean. It called, I answered. Part 6 is done!
Hmmm… those clouds. Look again, they are there. I’m torn… too light? IRL I can see them from a distance of about 6 feet. They’re stitched with the Fragipani which I bitched about previously. Seems I knew what I was talking about. Maybe I should frog them and re-do in a blue; but this is me – put your money on them staying the way they are. I didn’t like the gaps that the chart left in the half stitches under the boat, and since this is my Caribbean and not Chatelaine’s Caribbean Model, I filled them in.
And why do I love this piece so much? It’s like I’m making my own souvenir of my trip to the BIV this past February.
