Still Working on Fa La La
My progress is slow, but it is progress. I have been playing with some different stitching methods and that has slowed my down some (but I am a slow stitcher anyway). Also, I had to frog-out my snow, my floss must have been more tightly twisted (a little of the original snow on the left side) and it did not lay right. I have started it again (right side) and I am much happier with it.
New Stitching Methods
I am trying to do two-handed stitching (right hand on top of fabric, left hand below), but my left hand is not cooperating. I have also tried on top stitching (going through two holes so the needle is always on top of the fabric). Does anyone have any recommendations/suggestions to speed up stitching?
More of My Recent Stash Acquisition
I was waiting for a beautiful sunny day to take pictures of my NEW (first non-DMC) THREADS!! It came and went yesterday -- but we went to the parade & spent the afternoon with family instead.
Threads for Home of a Needleworker, Too
Threads that were too pretty to leave in the store.
These orange tones (Autumn Leaves, Carrots, Copper) are much prettier in real life.
Thanks for stopping by!
