Many of you know that I've been working on what I've affectionately dubbed The Stocking of Doom for my new sister-in-law. It's not a secret that I'm not a fan of pink...or orange, but Anne is. She wanted a fairy in those colors and she wanted it to look more like her with a darker skin tone - more Native American.
I'm here to tell you that DMC doesn't give a lot of floss options when it comes to non-caucasian skin tone, so...I did the best I could. But in the meanwhile, hey DMC - how about more variety, please?
So this is my color palette, including the backing fabric. You can scroll down to see the progress and the finished stocking. I'd forgotten how fun it is to use seed beads and bugle beads on a project. I'll probably be doing that again in the relatively near future.
Now everyone in the family has his/her own stockings and all is right with my world. This is number 17. Whew!
