i knocked out the wood paneling yesterday while watching all the football games on tv. i am just so excited to be moving on to the background! i feel like i turned a corner and i can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
i used 3 shades of vineyard in slanted gobelin for the wood. i tried using overdyed floss, but the coverage was less than desirable. i had a fleeting moment of "this looks so plain," but then i quickly reminded myself that once the flowers and beads are added, the leaves and wood will drop off into the background.
i will be dropping this off to the painter to add my name, so it will be a good opportunity to move on to another project for a while.
hope you had a great stitchy weekend!
