Isn't that copper one just fabulous! This is of course after I had cleaned them up a bit. I am debating on whether to clean the black one a little more or leave it as it. I do believe Miss Becky was my lucky charm with these. I think the one she sent me needed some friends. :o) Now to select the perfect piece to stitch and perch atop them.
The luck just kept coming for me when I won of Nancy's wonderful drawings. I won some of her chenille but the sweet, generous soul that she is also sent me a skein of her floss. Nancy asked what color I wanted in the chenille and I told her it was all beautiful so to surprise me.
This red is GORGEOUS! I can't wait to stitch up a little monochrome small of some sort with it and trim it with the chenille. Thank you so much Nancy!
If you haven't experienced her trims and floss you need to run over to her blog and shop and check it out.
I will leave you with a little progress pic of Sergei. He is being stitched on 36 ct Vanilla Double Dip linen from Tree of Life Samplings with various overdyes and DMC. I substituted the red in Sergei with WDW Lancaster Red because I wanted him to be a little redder. :o)
