La Mére Noel

by MaggieM1750 » Mon Jan 07, 2013 2:52 am

Here's what I've picked up after my Pi chart was done

La Mére Noel by Tralala
I have no idea what fabric this is. Once I take the tag off, I have no clue of the count. I think its 28, but it may be 32. Its an oatmeal linen.
Its hard to see in the photo, but down by her feet are 2 light grey birds with red hats. They don't show up well, I may restitch them in a darker grey.
With that ribbon, I am going to make this into a standup box

Thanks all. The red is Weeks Dye Works Lancaster Red. Makes me a bit nervous next to the white. Stitching up quickly.

Wow.. its been a year since I have worked on Mrs. Claus.
Here is her update.
I have stitched those little birds 3 times looking for the right color. Originally, they were a variegated grey white. But you could barely see them, they just blended right into the fabric. Then I tried with a light solid grey.. but again, it just faded into the background. Finally settled on this brown.

I am also looking for tips on working with Fuzzy Stuff floss by Rainbow Gallery. There is a little ball that goes on the end of her hat, and I was thinking I would use it on the bottom of her skirt.
