The Night Before: A little more done
Well, since the last post about The Night Before, a design by Anne Stradal of ABS Designs, I have frogged her dress and stitched it in a lighter color, decided to stitch her apron using a metallic white thread with a little bit of silver in it. I thought that she might have decided to wear her prettiest apron since we are on the eve of Christmas. I also stitched some little shoe/slipper using a metallic pink to keep her in style :-)
I have done the lamp base using a gold metallic thread, finished the wallpaper behind her.
I still have to finish the top of her dress as well as the base of her sleeves (cuffs), finish the pine branches on the wall with a red bow, do the lamp shade stumpwork style, do the scarf knitting also stumpwork style, do the basket, the yarn balls and add the knitting needles, and oh yes also need to stitch her hat. I think that is about it.
I was thinking of adding a pearl necklace around her neck. Would that be too much? I have made her dress rather plain so I feel that I need something to make it stand out a little bit. Of course the scarf will cover a part of her apron and dress. I was wondering if I were to add some thread over the dress and create some kind of design. Any ideas, anyone?
