Here are my pictures of ?
I need a name and not TOM, to many Toms out there
|This is a close up of my stitchery turkey. I added some distress stain around the outside of the stitching to make him look old and dirty. I already had pre-coffee dyed the fabric|
|I finished him as a ditty bag|
The next pictures are of my cross stitch turkey
He measures approx 7 x 7 and was stitched on 32ct linen. So it was hard to find a frame for him. I used an 8 x 10 that I had, set him of to the left and then thought I should fill it in with some bittersweet.
So I went outside and picked some, brought it in the house and started to cut it up to lay it down and realized that the little orange pieces are so wet. I couldn't use that and have it stain the stitched piece so that idea was a wash.
Maybe fake bittersweet would do but I didn't have time to go to the store. I found some fake red berries and added those to the picture by stitching those in place.
I am happy now :)
The punch needle turkey is kinda finished. I added him to a wool background and I am not sure if I want to hang him or lay him on a table.
But here are his pictures
I have to pick up hubby from the hospital again. He has been there for a few days and then take him to a doctors appt. As soon as I get back home I will work on the directions and these should be ready by Sunday or Monday the latest.
I will have the drawing for the punch needle pumpkin head giveaway on Sunday. So get those photos in to be eligible :)
Hope you are having a good day, the weather here is terrible, so windy and so much rain. They say we are having a nor'easter. I can not imagine if this was snow!!. Its been days :(
Have Peace today
