Hope all is well with you and yours.
I saw this photo on Earlene's Facebook post. Liked them, thought they were very long pine cones with the scales scraped off. So I tried with mine. Extremely hard to break or cut through, could not get a nice result. So many different cones from different trees so I'm sure there are some that are more accommodating to having their scales ripped off.
While golfing last week Mark found these under a large evergreen and brought a few home. Every one on the ground looked the same so we wondered if they fell from the tree like this or a bunch of OCD squirrels chomped them all to match. The end scales are very thin and easily removed so I'm assuming they are the result of a squirrel banquet. But from what tree? My spruce and pines are much heavier and shorter than these. Any help?
I've been running into town for appts and blood work which are very close to JoAnn's. But each time, I have failed to remember the 3864 DMC that I need to complete his face. I am anxious to finish and may just use the pinks. I changed his belt and moved his left eye over one stitch. I'm thinking a half stitch or two of white around the eyes may look better, but I won't know until the face is done. Haven't decided color of the tree's sack yet. The beard called for 613 which I used but on this fabric, I think I would have liked it a little lighter. Nothing stopping me from changing that but again, won't know until we have face time.
We'll be having Thanksgiving here, just the five of us. I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Hope your day is filled with love and your turkey is free of hormones.
Thanks for visiting.
