completed stitching project

For Chad's mom's Christmas present, I made a snowman on a blue background from a kit. I don't have a good picture because I didn't remember until after it was framed, meaning reflections like whoa, but here's a little one just to prove that I did it:



I'd never stitched on dark fabric before, nor with a single strand of floss (a deliberate choice by the designer, to give it an airy feel); the latter turned out to make stitching rather unforgiving, so I gave up trying to stitch in the hand and broke out the Q-snaps, which was definitely the right choice.

(I also tried framing it myself but the foam board was too thick for the deepest ready-made frame I could find, and I didn't trust my ability to line it up properly without using pins and foam board. Oh well.)

Next up, finishing the red dragon. I am currently backstitching the body, and then I just have to fill in the wings and body and I'm done, so that's exciting.
