stitch club :: 12/2018 :: fairy ring

 

in the days ahead, may we feel creative and connected, focused and free, strong and successful, cozy and calm, present and powerful.

 

let's choose to be our best selves in 2019 💜🍄💜

 

 

i'm almost done with my stitch club stitching this month!
today i'll be finishing up the stitching on the moons. i'm using padded satin stitch, and as you can see in the first photo above, i've got the padding done; now i just need to add the satin stitching.

if you're following along, here's a list of the other stitches i've used on this piece < stitch name / # of floss strands >:

on the border:

  • leaves and branches < back and satin / 2 >

  • small purple mushrooms < back / 2 >

  • dandelions < back, colonial knots / 2 >

     

in the center:

  • mulch < straight / 2 >

  • mushrooms < whipped back / 2 > and for the contour lines < straight / 1 >
