Papillon Creations Part Six and a Cute Interlude !!!

After the brain frazzling adventure of Papillon Creations part five I decided to do something mindless and created a little felt cutie.  I made a little gingerbread man out of some scrap felt I had.  It only took a couple of hours and was the perfect tonic to restore my faculties !!!!!




After this I decided to give part six a go.  I was so surprised, despite the cutwork, this really stitched up very quickly.  It only took me a couple of sessions (I had already done the outline).  I was so intimidated when I saw the Greek crosses but the instructions were really well written that it only took me a couple of practice squares on a scrap piece of fabric before I felt confident enough to give it a go for real.  I still get so frightened when cutting the fabric, but I guess that is because it is only my second time of doing Hardanger and it may lessen with more experience.







I am now working on page two of Fractal Bookmark 292.  This is only a partial page so shouldn't take too long to stitch up.  Since it has been a while since I worked on this, here is a picture of where I left it last.



Happy Stitching Everybody,

Donna.

  1. The gingerbread man is cute. Great job on your specialty stitches and Hardanger cut work. I have never tried!
