Soon I will make - or buy ready-made - the Advent wreath
With the new stitch - the Portuguese border stitch -
I thought of braiding a wreath
and as the season is approaching
an Advent wreath came out of my needle
I used a pretty thick viscose thread which is
rather difficult to handle but the shine to it is wonderful.
To depict the needles I used barred chain stitch
on the inner and outer circle.
And where the stitches were not very even I made drizzle stitches
and tatted rings.
Tatted rings are also on the sides made of 6 stranded mouliné thread
Mary Corbet has just lately put on a tutorial
how to make a six-pointed star and it came in very handy for me.
You find it here: six-pointed star
Thank you Mary!!!
My star is still looking very poor - it was a first try.
Moreover, SharonB - who gives us all those very interesting stitches
- the Portuguese border stitch is the 47th this year -
also pointed it out in her blog pintangle.com

There are so many interesting things to see, to read and to do.
