March Stitchalong: week 3

cake time

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!

I think I see some beaded eyes? Great idea!

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.

  6. I've been thinking about french knots lately. I love how I've been seeing more inspiration from you gals on smooshing them together to create texture. I was eyeing an unfinished piece hanging on my wall today and finally figured out what it needed - knots! So when I get that done I'll share it. Thanks for the inspiration!
