As of this weekend, I’m all caught up!
I’m really enjoying playing with different stitches. For each pattern, I try to stick with just 2-3 colours and at least one “fancy” stitch. My definition of “fancy” is pretty broad and really just means at least one stitch that *isn’t* my usual back stitch. For some, that meant nothing more then adding a bit of stem stitching, but I also did french knots, the easy version of chain stitch (which I hadn’t tried until now) and I played a lot with the blanket stitch (my favourite is with the dots on the mushrooms – see below). I can’t wait to see what this week’s patterns are!
