Just thought I’d come by and show you what I am working on and blah blah blah. First, I wish dog lovers a happy National Mutt Day. We have been looking at and visiting a bunch of dogs since our little Onyx passed away in Spring. Annie and Abe are still going strong but I long for another little boy dog. Sooner at later, I will find him.
So, here’s my new canvas that is part of my butterflies 🦋 series. That is a thin sheet of aluminum (not foil-thicker than foil) used for the larger butterflies. Somehow, I was able to stitch into the foil.
Of course, I had to treat myself to a super funky fun yarn for the background- I remembered I have a reward points at Madelinetosh yarn and checked around there and woohoo! A sale was going on as well! What would normally be a pricy 30 bucks a skein turned out to cost about $19. Nice! Until it arrives, I will stitch in the skull (I think I’ll use one of my white balls of Universe brand yarn). I still need to decide on colors and textures and directions and stitches for the rest of the canvas.
I had ordered more “Dopamine” from Madelinetosh a week ago but I didn’t pay attention to the size of the yarn . Here’s a picture to show the size difference between Fingerling (the size I usually prefer) and DK . DK is the thicker yarn
Not sure how or if I decorate the aluminum butterflies. I could glue, stitch or paint on those wings. Come back soon and see what I do.
