I finished stitching my Halloween Topiary last weekend. Yesterday, I made a trip to ACMoore for mat board and found a fat quarter fabric there that was perfect for my flatfold finish. When I got home I just had to get to it and cut the board and fabric and do all the gluing.
Here is the almost finished Halloween Topiary just in time for Halloween.
Don't you just love it? I am so happy that I chose to make this piece.I have to put some sort of edging around it still, but I can't decide. I would love your comments. Below are two slightly different yarns that I thought would look great on it, but Hubby thinks they look too elementary school. I was leaning toward the one on the right.
Either one goes with the fabric that I used. Isn't that fabric perfect?!
I could make cording out of this Ecru perle cotton that I have. The pattern called for cording made out of a bright orange perle cotton, but I don't want to have to buy something when I have so many options in my stash.I could also make a cording out of this vintage orange rope floss that I inherited.
Or I could make cording out of a combination of flosses.
I am not sure what to do. Please comment.
Now I want to concentrate on getting more knitting done on my sweater.
I think I might go back to working on the Advent Calendar that has been languishing since last October.
I am not sure I will be able to work on this all that much with my arthritic thumb, but I do want to finish it.
I may alternate that with "Jingle as ye come, jingle as ye go". I am almost one-fourth finished with it.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. She is dealing with some thumb issues herself. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. It is going to be a miserably rainy day here on Long Island, so I will be working on one of those projects that I mentioned above.
Thanks for stopping by!
