The colors are happy and its a mix of threads and fun stitches. There's always something fun to distract me on this canvas.
I will admit that I'm not quite finished yet. There are still a few more T Stitches to be added to the upper border and beads to be added to the red/orange sections. You know how I feel about beads. One can never have too many.
The red orange section is the Medallion Stitch. The instructions show both the traditional way of working the stitch and a little modification that I made that makes the stitch faster to stitch. Why stitch 4 stitches when 2 longer ones will do just the same thing?
Typically when working the Medallion Stitch you would work 4 stitches to make the cross in the center of the medallion. They will ultimately be covered by an Upright Cross so why not just do one simple large Cross Stitch? Two stitches are faster than four.
I do love his googly eyes. That was just one of those things that I saw in my head from day one.
So, I'm off to start the Dog Walker Mystery. It's another super cute colorful canvas.
