THAT'S AAAA MORE RAY!
Laura says to randomize your tent/basketweave stitches so that you get a good effect with the colors in said moon, and methinks she is a gee-ney-ous, since that's exactly what happened. Almost looks kinda real, if you ask me.
(Which I know you didn't, but I thought I'd mention it anyways.)
As for the smoke...I'd love to tell you that I came up with those gentle wispy swirls on my own, but they are the result of me following the chart.
Today I'll add the leaves to the trees and then the stems to the pumpkins. I've left those for last, since they are to be stitched in bullion knots, and I've never even tried one of those. I suspect that there might be a fair amount of cussin' in my future, but I am optimistic that I'll eventually prevail! Stay tuned!
Don't you just love the Fall? Makes me want to buy school supplies.....
