365 Stitch a long - day 36 - closed Blanket Stitch

I'm a little sentimental this morning. Would give anything to be able to sit and stitch with my grandmother. She had a little storage room at the top of her stairs that held all kinds of needlework and quilts. An oversized linen closet. I am sure I get my love of creating from her.

Todays stitch is a closed blanket stitch. Mine are 5/8" in size. I start at the top right corner and stitch with thread under the needle coming down to the point each time. I then go back and put the closing stitch on the right side. A straight stitch with French knot ends is spaced between each little "fan".

Keep stitching,
