Working on Big Brother
I first stitched the outside of the penguin with black Petite Very Velvet and brushed away the fuzzies. The inside white of his body will be worked in basketweave with two strands of white Medici left over from my stash. Actually, all of the threads I'm using for both socks are remnants of previous projects!
Then I added the framework for the background with Vineyard Silk Classic "Bright White" in stripes of slanted gobelin stitches over three canvas threads. With this much accomplished, I can start adding the brighter colors for the cuff and the pinstripes.
