After two days of rain and many more before without sun we made a walk in
the hills not far from home
We loved to see this lonely tree. ---
And all afternoon I did cross stitches - letters - over waste canvas
The method is good to get regular stitches - but to pull out the threads is
Letter "C" is in process of being freed - the "T" will be next.
I damp stretched it - and also it looks like the red thread bleeded it didn't.
It must be the shade or what ever. Damp stretching is fantastic and thanks
to Karen Ruane I know about this method of not ironing the embroidery but
stretch it with pins and moisten it and wait over night.
This was my first try - home-dyed pinkish-red thread.
It destroyed my letters T and S - So I started a new piece.
