...yes, crewel work! Everyone seemed to enjoy stitching this little project. You might remember it from earlier. Even though this is kind of an introduction project, there is still quite a few different stitches to play with. That is one of the things I really love about this style of stitching - there is simply no end to the stitches you can try and apply to a design. I think my favourite parts of this particular one is pinwheel berries (I have a bit of a 'thing' with pinwheels at the moment) and the little domed dot in the middle.
We did talk a great deal about stitches and one of the girls, Yolanda did ask me if I had a favourite. I don't think so really, but you will very rarely find a bullion knot in any of my work. So many people do them so beautifully and those knots and I just don't get on.
Do you have a favourite stitch - or one that you simply can't get your fingers around?
I was on a bit of a roll when putting the kits for the class together and made a few extra. They are now in my SHOP as well as the pdf pattern if anyone would like to have a go.
Where ever you are, find time to stitch and have a wonderful week.
