What If

What if someone sent you a pair of socks and said to decorate them any way you want?  What would you do?  Than is my dilemma.  Along with the pre-stitching for the retreat in June came a pair of socks.

I've been thinking what technique would be best?  Embroidery?  A stumpwork slip butterfly stitched onto the socks? How about a tiptoe through the tulips theme?  Looking through Pinterest yields a ton of ideas.  I'm still thinking about it.  By the way, this is a contest too.  The socks will be voted on.  You shouldn't tell a competitive person that.

I'm working on Virgin Queen's Stitching Wallet.

I made a big mistake.  I made that v-shaped vine red but it was supposed to be purple.  So I made the big flower purple instead of the called-for red.  I thinks it looks okay.

It is a nice day.  Fifty degrees when I went walking.  Wonderful.


  1. Well, you will only see the cuff, right?
    Why not just decorate the cuff part.
    The Wallet is looking great.

  2. The color changes work for me!
