One Shiny Potion

Chibi-Sev is finished!

I think. I may go back and make the grey pupil on his left eye one stitch longer. It looks sort of odd to me... I can't make up my mind.

The potion is a lot darker than it was originally charted; I could only find three shades of green in that satin-floss. It was not fun to work with, but the result is very shiny IRL and that's what I wanted. So yay!

I forgot to measure him, but he's about seven inches tall, stitched with two strands of DMC on 18ct ivory fabric. He makes number 4 out of 30 done for my stiching challenges!

After Sev was done, I decided to work on a small project before leaping into Frederick - I tried my Prairie Schooler Santa (1984) and got this far:

Before I said 'forget it'. I'm just not in a Christmas-stichy mood. I'll see what else strikes my fancy tonight :D I may just go on to Frederick and forget the small project for now.

  1. Congratulations on finishing! The final project is really nifty, and the potion looks spiffy, and maybe like it would have a strong effect.
