I was not happy with how dark her ears were with the DMC 839 to be honest. So for my own version I tweeded 839 and 840 for the ears and the tail. Have you ever done that? Do you know what I am talking about. This means that instead of using the two strands of 840 as I have stated for the chart below, I actually used one strand of 839 and one strand of 840 together. It lightened it up just a bit. Just enough. I like it. There was no way for me to express this on Stitch Fiddle, so I am mentioning it here.
Also I could not believe that Stitch Fiddle does NOT have DMC 806!!! I used 806 for the ocean just so you know. NOT 807. I had no choice but to chart 807 since there was no other option for me there!! CRAZY! 🤪
I stitched my little scene on a lovely light blue sponge dyed 28 count even weave. I was saving this fabric for just the right project and this was it. It gives it a nice sky background. I am afraid this did NOT show up in the above pictures well at all. I tried in different lighting. That is why one picture is so dark. Just trust me. I used DMC, stitched two over two.
So here is the chart if you want to stitch it. As always, my little poodles are available for free on my Calendar Poodle SAL Page at the top of this blog. Just click on the tab to see all of the months and to see pictures of stitcher's finished poodles.
|Use two strands of 839 to make the French knot nose. Use one strand of 3799 to backstitch the birds.|

I have been keeping busy with my health issues. I am still stitching. I plan to have a finish to share with you next time.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate all of your comments. You brighten my day!
Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5
