This is the pattern I was looking for a while back.
It was designed by Sharon Cohen and I wanted to stitch it after making the blackwork pin cushion.
I wasn't sure I could do it because it has a lot of detached buttonhole stitch and queen stitches. But since I found the pattern and had all the threads, why not try?
So far it isn't too bad. I have had to take some bits out and try again. Did you ever look at your stitching in the morning and realize that you put the wrong color in the night before? Yes, that happened to me. I am also learning to pay attention to all the directions. Sometimes I try to skip steps.
I am getting the hang of detached buttonhole after doing quite a bit on Amy Mitten projects.
It is starting to take shape. It will be a needlebook when I get done.
There is also a pin cushion that matches.
BFF#2 is coming over to stitch today. It will be fun to gab and stitch.
Having someone come over is motivation to get my work done. Bathrooms are clean. Walking is done. Time for fun.
