Betsy, oh, Betsy

Fun Wednesdays at The Needle Works

Added little red square

Started wallpaper



Wallpaper is in




Compensated star
Added Lame border

Ran out of lame

I am probably going to need some expert advice on how to compensate the star stitch around the fingers  .  The wallpaper was so quick.  The flowers will go in on top later.  Today's goal is the hat and the apron.  Wish me luck.

    1. Fingers are satin stitched. Didn't go to The Needle Works yesterday. Couldn't shake off my post-election depression. Bummer.

    1. I just don't know what to do with those monsters. Amy calls for padding and making them even more noticeable. Do I have it in me?

  4. Hi Steph,
    Oh, you are really moving on Betsy. Is the wallpaper stitch what Amy suggested or did you change it? I love the stitch

    1. The wallpaper is Amy's suggestion. Sandy's slide with two strands of silk. I hope you are all safe and warm during the storm.

    2. We had about six inches of snow. Everyone is fine just waiting for Jen's power to come back on.
      Hope you are having a better day today. I think it is going to take a long time for us to recover from this.

  6. Betsy is really looking like a star stitcher! I can't believe how much progress you have made! Love her dress by the way! Congratulations on what those flying fingers of yours have accomplished in such a short amount of time! ( I don't think I have used enough exclamation points in this comment!!!!)
