The Bear – from Cottage Garden Samplings – A Year in the Woods. There are a lot of stitches in this bear, trust me on that. I think, in fact, that he is the densest so far of the seven I have stitched. (Well, almost stitched in this case).
But he needs his head, along with the rest of the cattails and the cottage.
Why not his head? I was filling in areas while sitting in my car at the SFVA waiting to log in, get connected and “participate” in a scan. As I mentioned before, I drive in early because I would rather sit in my car listening to an audio book and stitching than I would leave later and spend time in traffic. At some point, it might just be reasonable to go back to BART – but I am not there yet.
Speaking of heads – I participate in a once a month Zoom meeting dedicated to “Fancy Folk stitching.” It creates a bit of an incentive to make progress. Since I finished Leo yesterday, I decided to work ahead on Virgo.
As mentioned – without backstitching and embellishment – zombie might just be the correct word…
