Sometimes I'm finding that the simplest stitch can sometime have the greatest impact.
Like the use of a running stitch along a flower stem.
I mastered the Palestrina Knot and like the dimension a little knot adds to a blanket stitch. Now what to do on that flower??? Any ideas??? It's relaxing having a little sampler to work on as the evenings get nicer and we can sit outside more.
Speaking of nice...I have a long weekend off from teaching and the hubby is working.
So, because my blog is also like a personal journal, I am going to include my "To-Do" list for the rest of the weekend. (Plus I love making lists and the crossing things off.)
Bam! Got everything marked off my list just in time to relax, have dinner and stitch & watch a movie tonight. I have the layer cake all ready to go and it will be my next WIP. Updated: 5/26/14. Now if my poor husband would get home from his 8 to 8 shift. (poor guy and he never complains!)
