I'm working on a snowman BOM. August is stitched. The first of 12. He wanted to look nice before I share, so he took a bath.
A little dry and a little press and here he is. Happy guy.
Try not to melt while you wait for your buddies to be stitched.
There were so many decisions and learning before I took the first stitch on this. Backstitch? Stem stitch? How do you do those? How many strands? What needle? What size stitches? To back? Or not to back? Knots? Starting? Ending? Search, search, search. Practice stitches on a muslin scrap. Decide.
