Violet really like cars, airplanes, trains, cats, the colors blue and purple, Britney Spears, Tool, acting like she is sleeping/ snoring, pulling my short hair and finding the moon in the sky. “where da moon?” Mama, where’d it go??” … “There he is!”
So much so that I’m going to make her a moon for her room.
A friend of mine found some cool glow in the dark thread that seemed perfect for the project. These are Kreninik brand, which I haven’t used before. I’m excited to try.
I whipped up this moon. It’s 10 x 10 and meant for a 12″ embroidery hoop.
I’m hoping to work on it before Christmas. I gotta catch her while she still cares where the moon is.
BONUS!!! Comment below and I’ll send you the pattern as a pdf.
So, I can’t wait. I tried to wait and finish other things. But I just can’t do it.
Just a couple notes about this project already. It’s actually going to end up being about 8by8 in a 10″ hoop. That just felt better to me.
The thread is, as you know, Kreinik Metallics, but it is also medium braid. Having only bought basic DMC thread previously I didn’t realize how thick this was. It was actually a pleasant surprise. I had been wanting to do something other that straight up cross stitch for this project. Because the thread is thick I think it looks great with only one pass. More sketchy.
Also the pattern is kinda huge. So I’m printing corner by corner. The yellow bits are where I highlighted the middle gray color. This is just to help me see it a bit better.
This is now my main project. At least until the new crochet book I ordered comes in…and until I get up and print out the embroidery pattern that I’m planning to do for this.
And the baby is due in 10 days. UHOH!
This is about 2 hours of work today.
I like it I’m debating on taking out the green. It’s the darkest of the three “grays” and I think it would cool just not there are all. Hmmm.
