More progress on Herr D
I'm on the home stretch now stitching the model for the Herr Drosselmeyer canvas.
All the Scotch stitches are now in place for the background. I usually "frame" as I go along, but need to acquire the thread for the tent stitches. But before I could finish this part of the background, I needed to stitch the clock cabinet. I often use perle cotton to simulate the look of wood grain, and here selected DMC #5 perle cotton #801 in a series of slanted gobelin stitches over two canvas threads.
Once I finish the background, all that remains is the inside of the clock itself, and I'll be done!
