Another RR Bites The Dust!

Yay! I just put in the last bits of BS (not that there was a lot of it) in on Chrisanne's Band RR. This will be it for at least a few days... maybe a week when one of the Neighbourhood RR's get here.

Chrisanne's theme was Floral ... so I dug through my magazine and found an Apple Blossom chart. I used my computer to print out a chart of the reverse so I could stitch two of them curving in opposite directions. To fill things in I added some garden critters.


Apple Blossom, Bee & Butterfly
Quick and Easy Cross Stitch
June No. 88
Stitched on mystery fabric using DMC


Tomorrow... I should be able to pick up Noah's Sub!


The iris for today is : Supreme Sultan!

Very pretty, I like the cute little butterfly and bee in it. How did you use your computer to reverse the design? I have a couple of patterns that are small that I'd like to do that to, but I didn't know that a computer could somehow reverse the image. Is it a special program?

The sultan RULES! What a stunning bloom!
The RR turned out wonderful as well.

Wow - I didn't know you could get a computer program to make a mirror image of a pattern. I've always made myself half blind and quite dizzy by just stitching the same pattern 'backwards'. LOL!

That iris is incredible!

Gorgeous iris, Dani! And very lovely work on the RR.

Hi, Dani. I can't believe your iris pic. I'd love to paint it with all its richness in color. I agree with Barbara...didn't know you could computer reverse the sides like that. My mind would be twisted!! Like it's not already!! LOL
Hugs,
Deb

I just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the tip you left me about replacing French knots with colonial knots. It worked out great! :D
