Today is one of my least favorite days of the year, “boobie smashing day” the poor old girls have been through a lot over the years, but to be safe I guess they have to endure some torture. I was going to work on my Black & White chart while I waited but everything went so quick today, no waiting. This was the first time having a mammogram done at our new hospital on Fort Belvoir in Virginia.
In my modified rotation as I like to call it I have made a little progress on the soldier memorial and on the Green goddess. I had a hard time with the red for the memorial, I changed it a couple of times some were too pink and some were too purple so I have combined two different variegated threads (DMC #48 & DMC #107) to get the affect that I wanted. I could have gone in search for the SILK’N COLORS floss suggested by the chart but I wanted to get started and use what I already had on hand.
On the Green goddess I made another change, in the background there is a sort of honey cone like affect which was supposed to be stitched with Kreinik #4 braid 3215 Peridot but with all of the sparkles from the fabric itself it completely faded out. Instead I used DMC 703 Chartreuse it looks really good, not too dark, hopefully you can see it in the photo.
Well time to go make some more xxs.
