As a pre-school teacher last year, I was introduced to a lot of new children’s television programs. I watched several of them to know what my students liked and how to talk to them about the show. Many of these shows were painful to watch (read: Yo Gabba Gabba). Little Einsteins, however, was actually quite well done. The title of this post comes from their theme song, and I definitely recommend this show to any parents looking for interesting television for their little ones that won’t make them want to pull their hair out (read: Yo Gabba Gabba).
So, back to rocket ships. When we last left off, I was trying to figure out how to get the buttonhole stitch to work around the window. Before attempting again, I remembered the lesson from this month’s Cyberpointers meeting, which was on Hilton Stitches. I decided to try my hand at the Jessica stitch.
Then I realized that it would be very difficult to get the blue underneath all of that stitching, so I ripped it out and tried again.
It’s not a perfect Jessica, and I know I made a few mistake on the last section where you have to tuck your new stitches under your old stitches, but I think it looks pretty good.
I also added the buttons and fire trail to the rocket. The only thing left now are the wings, and I think I’ll wait and stitch them later (padded satin stitch maybe?).
My last bit of progress was on the shooting star. The darker blue metallic is the Silk Lame Braid. It’s very easy to work with, but for some reason my scissors did not enjoy cutting it.
