I thought it would be funny to make an ornate frame for tiny Weedle. I used cross stitch for Weedle, satin stitch behind him, blackwork for the border, and then I added gold beads. This was for a challenge at Sprite Stitch- “Portraits.”
Stage one of my newest pattern is complete! Pretty happy, though I hate the red selection in DMC. The two darkest have too much purple to use for the outline, but then I got bugged because I wanted the fill colors to be lighter than the outline and UGH. Wish I’d just stuck to the dark red fill, but oh well.
