Did lots more french knots and some satin stitching.

  1. Knowing how long hand stitching takes, I am impressed with how much you get done in a week.
    And more lovely work this week!

  2. Your altered width ladder stitch is fabulous! It's one I've struggled with in the past- I'm afraid I perhaps don't know how to do it correctly. And I love the red stitches "falling" off the bottom...

  3. I love #50 and #56. Snaps.... never thought of using them as an embellishment.

    1. Thanks Deb, the snaps are leftover from a piece I called "I Have a Notion".

  4. You are so artistic! Thank you for the inspiration you give us :-) each one of these is as wonderful as they are unique

  5. My favourite project is the one with the red stitches! I also love the plus signs stitched on the plus sign. Very creative.

  6. This week I like all of your circles and stitchery. #54 especially speaks to me though I am not sure why. Beautiful.

  7. Love the "universal shape" you made. I've seen two other projects this week using this plus sign/shape and I've loved them all!
