Yes I left my skating hedgie & girl on the washing line to dry, to get rid of a few marks that were annoying me. Hopefully I will be able to finish the embroidery later today, there are still lots and lots of french knots to be added and a moon too!
I started embroidering the skating duo quite a while ago. I got a bit carried away and used lots of fill stitches, they looked o.k.and sometimes even more than o.k. but I think the main thing that was bothering me was the natural/beige coloured fabric I was stitching on. It just didn't have that crisp ice-y look I was looking for. So I started again this time using Kona Cotton Solid Pearl Pink. And instead of lots of fill stitches I mainly used outline (back) stitches on this version. Much better! This cute skating couple will most likely be in the shop later this week... :)
