Ring Around the Tail…Katerina the Cat

     Taking shape around the tail are three “padded” satin rings…now the padding is interesting as it raises the rings to ‘new heights” Woo..Hooo…!  Using white DMC floche and a large/long split stitch (helps to fill in faster)… I forgot to layer the floche to give the element a rounded look and then it was decided to use the floche for the satin stitching…uh…uh..bad choice for me..taking out the satin part of the floche and then building up my padding a bit more then using DMC..white floss…one strand…. has made all the difference as you can see in the picture below… Wanting to finish the tail… time was spent on taking out and basically starting over but when it’s worth it ..it is worth it!  Have one more ring to finish and am tons happier with the satin stitching..

    Satin stitching over the long-shot stitches–it IS worth it! Can’t wait to see the cat when it is finally born.
