I have an update of my very slow progress on my patisserie project:
I have stitched the awning on the patisserie in this bright pink floss. I used chain stitch for the vertical stripes and back stitch for the edging. I also added a french knot at the top of each scallop:
I am using black floss for the iron sign holder and I have stitched a yummy looking cake inside a cake dome. I cannot decide what color I want the building to be. Right now I am going with a light gray...I love pink and gray together! What do you think? I love to hear color ideas!
Speaking of color, did you notice this sweet notebook? My sister made it for me for Christmas. Obviously, I love the colors she used...
and I have found the perfect use for it! I have been keeping a color number record of the floss I use on each embroidery project. Looking back through the pages, I apparently really love dmc #604!
