Everything is basted into place! Yay! Now I just need embroider everything to the back panel and then it will be ready to hang. That’s all, just a little embroidery left to do!
I will use embroidery thread in matching colors so the stitches won’t be too visible. I might go crazy and use some french knots and a few other more decorative stitches here and there for effect, like in the centers of the flowers.
Over the weekend, I got sidetracked by another small cross stitch project for a friend who is going to have a baby. Even though I have several months to get everything made for her, I just had to make this one project right now! This is the way I work, get one project in the works and then start another before finishing with the first one. Last night I finally started with the embroidery and it is looking pretty good!
