When I saw these needlepoint confections, I couldn't resist purchasing the kits and making them up. "WHY", you ask? Just because they seemed to appeal to me at the time and involved stitches I wasn't familiar with. A little challenge for me.
The kits are from the Little Shoppe Canvas Company. The Peter Pan Cookie is stitched using a Reverse Scotch stitch and French knots make up the light colored squares. It's 3 inches in diameter.
The Willy Wonka Wafer (aka, Brownie) uses a Reverse Continental stitch, Giant Reverse Scotch stitch over 5, cross stitch is used around each section of the squares. The top is stitched using a Satin Stitch using long stitches (some overlapping to crate a thick layer) and them the beads are added for extra pazazz. It's 4.25 inches long and 3.25 inches across the top.
I made my own cording when I put it all together. The backing material is a scrumptious chocolate colored cotton fabric.
Thoeria from My Little Corner of Cyberspace blog sent me the traveling pattern "Count Your Blessings" by Shakespeare's Peddler. Here it is - not sure how I'll finish it off yet, but have some ideas.
I'm ready to send this gem of a design off to a Sister Stitcher. If you'd like to be the next stitcher and agree to pass it along when you're done, please place a comment and indicate you are interested. The only guideline is you must have an active blog. I'll select the next stitcher April 20th.
