When I first started on my Stitching Society adventure, I was a lot more
anal careful about following the patterns.
As part of the program, we were given a clear overlay to use with a dry/wet erase marker.
We could then trace the design and use it as a guide to place the wool design pieces on the hexagon.
That was really helpful on Mr. Mouse.
|This is Wintertime.|
I simplified the design a bit. I wasn't too keen on the stars at the branch tips, and after stitching a few snowflake French Knots, I removed them and decided this one was done!
|Most of the designs are fanciful, but on a lot of the flora and fauna, I use my iPad to Google images just as little guide for colors.|
|Notice there are no instructions--just a line drawing, so it's fun to figure out how each hexagon will be tackled.|
The little circles on the branch could be French Knots or maybe crystals--I used pearly beads.
|I'm almost finished with my wintry group--next up: folksy!|
