As I have promised in this post, I know that I owe you an update on my "A Place We Call Home". I took photos of it before bringing to the framer last Saturday, but since it was Holy Week here, they are closed. So maybe I will bring it again this weekend.
I really love stitching this one. I made some tweaking as some of the threads called for are not available here.
I added metallic threads to the border design as it is so close to the leaves color if I won't make the addition. Also I enjoy using metallics. Am developing an addiction right now, LOL! I hope you can see them in the following photos:
I also learned something here, the hard way :-( I've used a metallic pen (sorry I forgot to take a photo of what I've used) for marking the places I am going to stitch but made errors in counting. When I've tried to erase the markings, it won't go away no matter what I do. So after that mistake, I will only, only use pencils for marking. Please see the marks beside the letters c, a, and l.
Thank you friends for dropping by. Take care always :-)
