Hi all, here is a new project! I used this shutterstock image as an inspiration. I chose to use the top image, because it is so close to what a Kennel person does! But I color the leashes and collars to add some spark.
I am using basic black (310 in the DMC chart) and Sulky thread for the leashes, since it is so bright and stands out so well. Sulky colors are numbered. I am using : Red (lipstick) # 561 Blue ( Deep Nassau Blue) #1293 Orange (Orange sunrise) #1238 Green (Classic Green) #1232 and Purple (Dk. purple) #1195 Please note I am using the “light” line of threads. These are 100% Rayon threads.
Here is a link to the list of Sulky Thread colors and numbers. http://www.sulky.com/thread/thread_rayon.php
I am using 2 threads for each pass of black cross stitching, and 4 threads for each pass of Colored stitch of each cross stitch. The Sulky thread is very thin.
This is a large project, and measures 16 inches long and 4 inches tall when using 14 count Aida cross stitch cloth.
I will post pictures of the progress I make soon!
