Just Stitching . . .

July 5, 2016

Having to stay at home for a few days…..

Picked up the painted canvas that I think is suppose to be an eyeglass case. Another estate sale acquisition . I am just using the design to practice filling areas.  I chose to do all the hearts in basketweave because I was looking to stitch without thinking.

Filling the vertical columns is fun.  I count the threads and then try to figure out a design that fits. I am using mostly pearl cotton so there is no laying involves.

The one area of background I have done is sorta boring……I think if I had used a #12 pearl instead of #8 it would have been more pleasing and more like a background. This is all part of the learning process. I have three more areas to experiment with. 

My photo is not real clear. All the red gets blurred….hope to get a better shot as I progress.
