Ok, I had a FMQ mishap. Outlining the kids names went ok, then tried micro pebbles, as filler stitch – SERIOUSLY BAD MISTAKE! !! Oh well as the stitching is so tiny, thought it would improve – WRONG AGAIN !! frogging too difficult. Also I have loads of doll fabric. So it is now a recycled panel as 3D letters.
My MOTH helped, by printing Tahoma (font) on size 400. I then selected a bright colour to compliment quilt and triple stitched my little heart out. Now yes I could have ruled/drawn lines. This was my method of choice.
Then the relaxing stripping of the paper & trimming. I have the best pair of fiskar snipers with easy soft touch grip. Make snipping thick items a dream. Like shaggy quilts. The snazzy plaid was a new PJ set in that great haul of goodies recently. Cosy & warm when I stitch in my PJs.
Next dilemma which backdrop for the letter. I’m going blue/pink/button fabric with daisy quilting. Believe it or not, both names are in the same font size, however I feel Danielle looks bigger, its obviously an optical illusion. They now need to be stitched onto the background.
Anyways time for a cross stitch interlude. Until next time 😊
Happy Stitching ❤ Debbierose xx
