Thanks to all the kind readers who missed me. I'm back. Someone was not happy with what I wrote and I had to figure out if it was me or her. It's her. I do not want to offend anyone. The words I write are my own interpretation of the world as I see it.
I also wanted to see if I stitch to the blog. Do I stitch so I can have something to show you or do I stitch what I feel like? I've found that it is a little bit of both. You encourage me. So thank you.
I have a finish! I finished the pin disc from the Passion for Needlework book. I love it. I learned a lot about working on the duchess satin. It is pretty sturdy material. I don't think it likes being in a hoop. It was hard to get wrinkles out with ironing. I mounted it on comic board with batting on it.
I got better as I went along. I like the little pansy on the back, it looks better than the ones on the front.
There is a coral stitch around the edge.
Luckily the pins hide when I goofed. I've done coral stitch before but I never remember how to do it. It takes a bit before I get the rhythm of it again. There is another pin disc pattern in the book that I may try later on.
After doing this project I think I can tackle the Flemish Ornament and just do it my way.
I am lucky enough to have been able to walk outside all week. Today it was quite slippery.
I've got another finish to show you tomorrow!
