A Little Wobbly

Band between checked rows
 I used another stitch out of Carolyn Baird's Merry Easter Eggs book here.  I think it looks so cute.

Overview of sleigh
 Here's where it gets wobbly.  I bought DMC Memory Thread.  I was going to tack it down over the railing of the sleigh.  It was too skimpy.  I took the three strands of the silk I am using and started covering it entirely.  I think it looks OK for my first try.  You need a sharp needle so you can go down anywhere on the canvas.  I think I am going to get some more silk and try to even out the lumpy parts.

Over here I had to double up the memory thread to cover the wider curl.
