Red Alert

Click now for JiffNotes

Just a quick drive-by post tonight. I did a teensy bit on my stumpwork class piece.
I've never done silk shading before, and I started by making the stitches WAY too small. It looks like trash right now...I started stitching longer stitches over top of the smaller ones. I hope I can make it look better!!

I have no idea what I'm doing with this silk shading stuff!!

Heather - I think it looks great! Stumpwork is something that I've always wanted to try, but have never been brave enough to do, so kudos to you :)

What is this trash you speak of?

Just remember: long and short! I'm sure it will look amazing when you're done!

I don't know what stumpwork is, but it sounds hard and looks lovely! He's a cute lil birdie (that is a bird, right?!? Heh. Just kidding ;) )
