Here She Is! :)

Ta Da!

She's almost topless at the moment, but at least she's not headless anymore!

As you can tell, I had stitched the words in green, but the r and t just really blended into the skirt colors. Who knew that green would blend into purple? So I found this brighter pink/red color and wanted to make sure it wasn't going to do the same thing. So I frogged the r and t to make sure, before I frogged all of it!

I think the red will be fine, I still like the green better, but I wanted to be able to read the words too!

I'm going to do the border on the bottom that she stands on, in green and the leaves between the words will be green too. So I think it will all work fine.

Now, I just have to frog all that green, over one stitching!!

She's pretty tiny. I just grabbed a random piece of fabric, and it's got to be 32 or maybe 36. I'm hoping to be done this week and start the drawing by the weekend. We'll see if it works according to plan!

My momma comes to town on Saturday. Today is going to be spent cleaning and straightening up! Hopefully I'll be able to stitch a few hours at some point today!

She's coming along nicely. I quite like half the wording in green with the rest in red - leave it in and it will save all that frogging!

Wonderful so far : ) Frogging over one? No fun at all ... I think you'll be happy with your results tho. Enjoy your Mom's visit. I was supposed to be with my Mom today; however, she has a cold & opted to stay in : (

hi Sara, thanks for your visit :o)

The Sisterhood lady is looking very fine, even topless as she is. If I were you I would never ever frog all of that green and totally leave it as it is. It looks fabulous this way!
