An Update on Henry

Hi there Stitching Friends! 

So I've been working on & off on Henry and I have an update to post. I have been having fun with it! I'm really looking forward to getting this piece finished. The backstitching, when I get it finished is really going to make the piece pop I think. Plus when I add the beads to the center of the flowers and the eyes of the bird and Henry. 

So here he is so far ... 


So what do you think? The blue half stitches are supposed to be going the opposite direction. But I didn't realize that until after I had already started stitching them. I had gotten about half of them done on the right side and then I looked at what the finished pattern is supposed to look like in the picture and that's when I saw it. I asked the opinion of several of my stitching friends on Facebook what they thought I should do, and based on that I left the stitches and just kept going, rather than take them out and start the half stitches over. 

So that's where I'm at! 

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥
