|Padded Satin Stitches for "Just Kidding"|
After looking carefully at the colors in my various threads, I decided that I liked the purple of the Finca perle cotton the best. It's a good match to the painted lettering and it also would make lovely satin stitches. I worked "just kidding" in padded satin stitches, working each letter with horizontal straight stitches, then going back over them with diagonal tent and longer stitches to create a raised effect. You can't tell the raised texture from the photo but it lifted the letters up and made them prominent. I like the effect.
But it is rather plain. I decided I would add bling to "kidding" by adding various shapes and sized of beads and by adding a stitch over my diagonal satin stitches in my very pretty light gold, purple and blue mix of metallic Kreinik 2094HL. So that's what I did. Here is the result.

Next week we'll talk about the largest word on this canvas. Stay tuned!
UPDATE: Pat used padded satin stitches on her Just Kidding row, too! Great minds think alike. LOL
