March Stitchalong: week 3
That's right guys, it's cake time. I was very fickle with this cake, and did a lot of stitching and re-stitching, so as luck would have it, I wasn't finished until precisely yesterday evening. I practiced my couching on the birthday candles, using 4 strands of embroidery floss - I love the woven sort of effect it created. Then lots and lots of french knot frosting. Now I see how addictive french knots can be. I am a fellow french knot junkie, it appears!
I was super-happy to see lots of you joining us this week on the March stitchalong, so without further ado, let's see some stitching!
mega4beth - sweetness! I love that sweet and simple color scheme - gorgeous.
Here's an adorable piñata stitched by LaWhimsy
Here's some more birthday cake, stitched by viji52
Daisyeyes stitched her piñata on a t-shirt - great job stitching!
I love how 1.2.Stitcharoo created a whole birthday scene with the motifs - and that one of the balloons is sad.
And just look at this gorgeous little cake by Luciana
