Ladies Take A Bow

Deco Spirits are done! As seen in this terrible terrible photo. They look a lot more vibrant in person.
I made some changes. I switched out the DMC metallic for Kreinik. Some of the metallics are supposed to be blended with regular DMC but the first time I tried it the cotton kept fraying madly so I just gave up. Instead I just stitched the metallic and added a top half-cross in the cotton.

So jealous! I wish I had time to work on my DecoSpirits over the holidays, but things are so crazy (until at least the first week of Jan!

In the meantime - GREAT JOB! I am subbing petite treasure braids for the kreiniks, but your DMC obviously worked out great!

I may just bookmark this page and keep coming back to it for inspiration. I've only done "earth" and I think my next panel will be "Water"
