Hen Night on hold

I’ve worked on this for a while now and it’s time to let it (and me) rest a bit. Here’s where it stands for now:

I’ve frog-stitched so many times and changed colors too. I think I’m satisfied with it for now or maybe not. I’ve used one thread on most of it. The white chicken will probably get another layer of stitches as too much of the fabric shows through. I kind of like the shading one thread of the golden color gets so I’ll probably leave it as is.

I started (again) on New Years Sampler.

I like it but I’ve already taken it out. I’ve been starting projects smack dab in the middle but I decided to work this from the top left. I didn’t figure my placement well and it was too close to the center.

So, here it is again where I’m trying to see what floss I want to use instead of the called-for white. The white just doesn’t show up.

I don’t know if I like this light gray or not. Some of the white areas I think should be snowflakes. I’m thinking I might use an iridescent white or a sparkly silver to see how it looks. Ideas?

    Beautiful! Have you considered Accentuate metallic as a blender thread?

    Have you tried DMC B5200 white? It’s a very bright white.

  3. Both are looking good. Those chickens are a whole lot of stitching!
