Hi everyone! Thank you all so much for your sweet words with the Falling Star finish. I know it was a long time coming, but I appreciate all your support and love! :D
I've rooted through my stash and found the perfect new start: SamSarah's Farmer's Market Fresh Melon.
I've actually had this kitted up for nearly a year, but now that summer is starting this feels like the perfect project! I'm not stitching up the fruit banner, just the 3D melon, which I think is going to be a fun challenge. Here's my start:
I've stitched about half of the red for the melon. I'm stitching this on 28 count Olive Jobelan, with the recommended Weeks Dye Works and Sampler Threads.
I actually have a question about this. When I bought it I thought I was going to finish it off biscornu-style, but reading through the finishing instructions, I realized it'll be a little tougher. They recommend using fusible interfacing, which I've never used. Has anyone ever put this together? Is the fusible interfacing a must, or can I go without?
Happy belated Mother's Day to all you mothers!
