Here is the latest incarnation of Sammy, this one belongs to Palma the Super Stitcher (as we all think of her over on Stitcherie!) I like her sky very much, it's very dynamic. She explained that she used a technique she learned from Ruth Schmuff where you concentrate a stitch in one area and make it more sparse in others. This definitely makes for an interesting background that has a little movement as well. Her addition of the kite button got all the other Challengers on the phone ordering kite buttons for themselves, myself included! Such a nice touch!
That's one character, now let me introduce you to the other. Last week you met my Pirate Mermaid, this week I give you my Lone Star Witch! Hailing from Texas, my cowgirl sorceress has a holster for her magic wand, a tall black hat (yes, Stetson makes witch hats) and of course her big silver state of Texas belt buckle! Big red boots, a bat bolo tie and her cute little pet armadillo complete her look. I hope you like her, she will make her public debut in time for this June's TNNA needlepoint market. Until then, happy stitching!
