Finally he's finished
Fortunately Snow Ho Ho was pretty much done except for fill in work on the border, pretty much a no brainer, which is about how my brain has been functioning in the evening lately. So I'd like to present my finish
This design in by Waxing Moon and he's done on 28ct Denim Jobelan. For the most part I followed the pattern, other than using 2 stands instead of the recommended three. Three stands are so difficult for me to get to lay so that I'm happy with them, and it then it gets so that I'm spending more time being frustrated with how my stitching looks than enjoying it, which is not the point at all. Therefore, I went with two strands other than for his nose, cheeks, and eye. These I did with three, partly as I started there thinking I would do the whole pattern in three strands as recommended and then was to lazy to frog it all out when I switched to two strands, and partly as I liked the slightly puffy effect it gives that area compared to the rest of him. Since a snowman would have eyes (or as shown here an eye) of coal, and a carrot nose and such, I think it gives a bit of a hint of 3-D effect he'd have in real life.
While I have a couple new projects kitted, no new start as yet to show. Hopefully I'll have something new soon. Although, I still need to do the pin cushion and finishing on my Necessaire, and I have a couple other WIP's I could (should?) spend some time on as well (Trick or Treat Mice and Flower Dragons come to mind). And hmmmm, seems I have a single sock knitted that at some point would really like to have its mate, and then I could actually wear it.
Thanks for all the continuing well wishes for Midnight. She's still hanging in there. We've been back to the vets a couple of times for fluids and new meds, so are pretty much just taking it one day at a time. There was sun for a bit today, and I did manage to get her to leave the corner in my bedroom she's been spending her time in for a brief time. Actually I moved her and then I think she just didn't want to move back at the moment, but at least she had a bit of something different to look at for a while.She blinked when the flash went off, but I think she looks pretty comfortable at least for the moment.
I'm hoping to get to your blogs soon, but now I'm off to do some laundry, clean cloths for the week would probably be a good thing.
