Theme-a-licious June Update
Theme-a-licious is hosted by Heather of It's Geek to Me
Each month Heather thinks up a theme for us to stitch to, or in my case, a theme to somehow shoe-horn my existing stitching into, no matter how tenuous the link!
This is the theme for June:
Is it a jungle out there in your stash? Give some love to the projects with animals or birds.
Kitty is stitched on some pale blue 28 count evenweave. I drew an Union Jack pattern on graph paper using pencil then carefully inked in the letters in red, blue and yellow (so it would show up). Then just stitched as usual. The white isn't very clear and the alphabettiness isn't as obvious on this kitty but as part of the set it will look good. I've just realised I haven't put June underneath him yet. I have some Union Jack ribbon to back him with.
The second animal themed piece is the Dragon Dreams 12 Dragonlets of Christmas. Alongside our dragon we have a very puzzled Goose for Six Geese a'Laying. Who is this little cuckoo in the goose's nest? I used a DMC light effects thread for the egg to give it a nice eggshell sheen.
The Dragonlets are only available through Dragon Dreams' page on Facebook.
My third piece is only just started, the Hallowe'en SAL ornie so photos will have to wait.
Finally, the photos are coming in for my Summer Blog Hop. All I need is a photo of something you've stitched on a Home theme. Click on the "There's No Place Like Home" picture to the right of the blog for more details.
