A stitching I will go....
I found another stitching project. This pear is actually a stitch sampler of sorts. It will give me the opportunity to learn some new stitches instead of my usual back-stitch.
(And yes I know I've got this stitchery in the hoop upside down - I was experimenting to see if it made holding it easier this way.)
I'm hoping to even tackle the dreaded french knot using this tutorial.
I found this on Kathy Schmitz's site. It is intended for a tea towel but I'll be making a small mini.
I've been experimenting with using a hoop and doing stitching with or without batting. I find I like the batting better because it makes things more stable and hides my thread tails.
Do you have any stitching going on?
