My stitching week.


This week there has been more sewing than reading.
The photo shows my work. This DMC card kit I have had in my stash for years, so I thought it was about time I got out the needle. I like the finished result although it's not perfect by a long way. The intructions stated long and short stitch for the petals. I don't know why but I haven't mastered that stitch, mine always look so messy. After numerous attempts, sewing and pulling out I gave in to my old favourite Satin stitch. Long and short stitches would have probably made it look neater but c'est la vie!

I think the card looks really nice, I think the satin stitch works as well.

First, thanks for your visits and comments to my blog. I appreciate you that a lot.

I like your work and your stitches do seem to work just fine. The enlarged version is really nice and one can see all the details.

If you hadn't said anything, I'd never have known it wasn't just as it's meant to be. It's beautiful!
