A shining sun

My goal in the last week was to stitch enough background so I'd clear the outside rays of the sun.  With that accomplished, I filled in the rest of the sun with Vineyard Silk Classic Creme Brulee and Nectarine in an encroaching Gobelin stitch.  The facial features were added with tent stitches.

In the next week or so, I hope to complete enough background so I can add some lettering

A good start

This is just a little piece--about five in. by seven in.--so I wanted to keep the stitching fairly simple.  I started the background in basketweave with four strands of DMC floss 3841.

When the blue became a bit tedious, I treated myself to the center of the sun, working it in an encroaching Gobelin stitch with Vineyard Silk Classic Creme Brulee.

Back to the background for a while!
