Still planting flowers here and they are well watered in with all the rain we had last night. Yeah!!! These little flowers have big lazy daisy leaves and little orange star flowers. Stitch a X and add a cross bar to finish the star.
Planting spring flowers this week....finally getting to it. Love having flowers all around in pots, and in the ground, hanging and on the table. My stitching today is also spring flowers. Start with a green V, and add a hot pink little v on the tips. Finish with a lazy daisy in a peach/pink color.
Todays stitch is a herringbone variation. It could be stitched in 2 colors but I chose one for today. This one is definitely easier to stitch after sketching on graph paper and stitches up very quickly.
Maybe I am thinking Moose Tracks ice cream while stitching this but thought turkey tracks was more appropriate. Stitch straight lines in blue. Add your turkey tracks in hot pink. The graph paper makes quick work of this one.
Today I think I took out more stitches than I put in....lol... Think I will clean house or work in the yard today...lol.. try stitching again tomorrow.
Start with a fairly large cross stitch. Again I stitched this in 4 steps so threads would be less likely to catch when finished. Add a three step yellow straight stitch flower to every other point. Add a blue diamond in between using straight stitches.
This is a laced stitch that starts with a running stitch in purple. Use the eye of the needle to lace the yellow through the running stitches. Place a purple X in the centers and finish with a french knot. This one does show the graph paper at the bottom. Tear the paper off before doing the lace part for less distortion of your stitches.
This is a combo of straight stitches and french knots. Large blue V, small yellow V. Straight stitch peach with peach french knot in between yellow french knots. You could add a french knot to the tip of the straight stitch peach.
It is so good to be back home after 2 full weeks of travel and pick up a needle. I am hoping to re-aquaint myself with my sewing machines later today after laundry and unpacking.
This stitch is an easy stitch to get us back in the groove. It is a large X with a french knot center. Instead of stitching the X in 2 steps, I stitched it in 4 so the threads would be less likely to be caught on things when finished. Stitch from outside to the center each time. A bright orange was used for the french knot.
