Miss Mary Mack - Round 2


Yesterday I restarted my over one Miss Mary Mack on different fabric. It's still 40 count R&R but this is Lt. Cappacino and it has a more open weave than the Sheep's Straw. It's easier to stitch on which is great. I've reread the information Lori sent to Chelle and decided to try the outline and fill method she mentioned. I plan to go down the right side of her dress and then work at filling in the center. Then I will work on her hair as it might require some adjustment to get it to fit within the tin pin frame. I basted in the rough outline of the frame this time as well.
I love this design!

I have to admit, it's not my sort of design, but I'm loving watching everyone's different versions of this wee gem ... she's looking great :)

She's looking great! I'll be curious about your experiences with the fill-method. I seem to always overlook stitches when it's such a high count.

I should have been more careful to make sure the hair fit in the pin. Too late now, although I still need to get the pin. Have fun!

I'm doing the outline and fill as well - or I would be if I'd devoted any time to her this week LOL!

She's looking great Patti - nice progress :)
