|Tapestry Fair's Egyptian Cat Unstitched|
At long last I have finished stitching the jewelry on the Egyptian Cat! Sorry to have taken so long but summers are very busy in Chilly Hollow. We have outside chores, house guests, and much more that takes me away from stitching during the summer time. But at least I've finished the cat's jewelry. You can see the canvas above without any jewelry.
|Catra All Bling'd Out|
And here is Catra with her jewelry finished. Oddly, it was the teal green and gold rows on the collar that gave me fits. I just couldn't get that right.
|Testing Palestrina Knots and Detached Buttonhole|
First I tried Palestrina Knots on the upper row, left. Then I tried two rows of detached buttonhole on the lower row, left. Finally I settled on using Diagonal Mosaic. I liked the Diagonal Mosaic best. It gave me the texture of turquoise chips that had holes drilled in them to make jewelry. Hope you like it as much as I do.
Now for the main question--does the orange nose (satin stitches using orange Shimmer Blend ribbon floss) look ok now that the jewelry is in position?
The bottom border is all that remains undone. Stay tuned!
