TAST Challenge Jan 2012 Week One

Hello and welcome to my blog! I`m liking Take A Stitch Tuesday already!  I used # 5 Perle Cotton on lightweight linen for my Fly Stitch attempt. I scattered the stitches round and about because I`ll be putting little buds on them using french knots. I have carpel tunnel problems and can stitch just a little at a time. Hope to practice my stitching again later this evening. To learn more about Take A Stitch Tuesday go here.

The first attempt.

Fly Stitch Two.  My cat was relentless, had to take a break! Ha!

Thank you for stopping by.

  3. I'd love to see the fly stitches when you get the buds on them, too. Nice job -- I have so much trouble doing scattered/random! Way to go, pacing yourself so you can still enjoy stitching (I have finger arthritis and I have to watch out, too.) Happy Stitching!
