And yes, I do know it's July now but I really don't think I've a cat in heck's chance of keeping up with the months on this calendar. The individual pieces may be small but they do seem to be quite time consuming. I thought May would be quite a quick one to do as there doesn't seem to be much to it but that net took ages, 'cause we all know how much I love to do the backstitching. I love it now that it's done though and I've also done quite a bit more on the My Little Heart SAL too. I should catch up with that before I carry on with the Venice Street piece, I think.
So, this is May's Winnie the Pooh – Catching butterflies.
His eyes look wonky. I was having immense difficulties with the French knots again. I think I'd forgotten how to do them. It took about four attempts to do a passable one for the one eye and then I did the second eye easily. The French knots on the butterflies are a bit hit and miss but mostly ok. Perhaps I should practise on some scrap first if I haven't done one for a while. I just wish things like that would occur to me before I messed up and did a bear with wonky eyes. Ah well, we'll call it a feature, eh?
