It still looks good;-)
I can't say the same about my crewelpracticepiecesamplerthing...
I'm trying, I really am.
I need to get down from a certain high horse - I had this thought, that oh well... how hard can it be?
HA! It's hard. And difficult. And sometimes sooo frustrating.
Which by the way fuels me immensely.
I'm very stubborn that way;-)
So - I lay my humble progress out for the world to see:
The acorns were fun to do. I had to rip out all the first many french knots - I'll have to read the instructions better. They needed two strands of yarn and although it is not that good-looking it gives much more definition. They are tricky those french knots - you never quite know where they will turn - making a straight line in the right acorn was a struggle that I lost.
Another struggle is the chain stitch. They are okay when I do straight lines, but there are a LOT of curves in the leaves and I find it difficult to make the turns look smooth and keep the same lenght of the stitches.
I don't think I'll make 3 rows of them - two will have to do.
It is quite scary to look at the pictures all blown up *lol*
Oh well... I have to take a break from the crewel now.
It's time to Swoon ;-)
