This little blue fish is my blue entry into the Feeling Stitchy Rainbow of Stitches contest. I love the way he turned out! He was very easy and quick to stitch, since I only used the back stitch :)
But look carefully at this close up:
I also used metallic floss! You can see it on the tail and a few selected scales. It is always a challenge to use but this is the first time I have ever stitched with it using my new #24 chenille needles! What a difference - so much easier to thread - I even used all six strands on the floss. Plus I think the sharpness of the needle must cut down on the drag through the fabric making it easier for the floss to pass through. I still had a hard time with it...just not as difficult as usual! Now onto my violet colored entry!
