Sunday Stitches – 1-16-22

Thanks for all the comments on the gold house – I think I’m going to like it but definitely needed a break from all that house stitching.  It’s a lot to fill in.  but the house will be easy to finish since I did tent stitch to outline where the windows are and am going back and completing the other stitch as I work my way up to a window so everything within the house and roof I won’t need to follow a chart on since it’s all outlined and ready to go.

Last night I didn’t feel like working on any of the other WIP so I pulled out my Sunday Stitches project a b it early.   I had started one of the bells from Bells of Christmas last Sunday.

Last Sunday I stitched everything except the words, little trees and snowflakes.  So last night I finished all that off.

I would change a few things if I were to restitch the bell I started with  – the one with the angel on it.

I used fabric that was slightly darker than the called for but the angel wings don’t show up as well as I would like.  They show up okay in the closeup but sort of fade away if not looking at it closely.  The dress is done in two colors and has a pattern in it.  I would just do it in one color if I were doing it again. You can see the pattern doesn’t show up well so just makes it look busy and really is a bother to stitch if you’re not going to be able to see it distinctly.  I would have preferred it in a single color.  The color for the staff I had to change because the called for disappeared into her wing color which could have been just a different dyelot issue but mine was a very yellowy color and the chart photo looks very tan.   The snowflakes are a bit hard to see too if not in closeup.  I dislike stitching things that just don’t show up well.

Eventually I’m going to stitch the other bell but will put this chart away for not and work on something else.  So I need to delve into my bag of Sunday Stitches charts and see what I want to stitch on next and pull the flosses.
