that's right. i'm saving the basketweave background for my flight to LA this weekend for a girls' trip!
this is the first time i've actually been excited to start the background for one of my nativity projects, since the flight from louisiana to california is a long one, and will no doubt lend itself to some serious progress!
when we last left off, i had completed the top half of the angel and her dress. i started on the orange basketweave for the bottom half of her dress, then followed that up with the turquoise tents.
the stitch guide called for red french knots in the center of each square, and for some reason that didn't sit well with me. remember how i went rogue with the elephant? i did it again. while the red worked on the elephant, i just wasn't feeling it on the angel. but you know what what did feel right?
purple! and beads!
i love it! i've already got the navy thread packed and ready to go for my flight! and just in case i miraculously finish this...i'm bringing the next project along for the ride too!
i'm off for a long weekend and will be back next week (hopefully with stitchy updates!)
