I will grant you a glimpse under our Christmas tree
one bauble chose to fall down...
but was cleaned away.
I made the cable chain stitches and variations - as taught by
Sharon in TAST stitch 23 on Pintangle
As I wanted to try chicken scratch I made the stitches on gingham
I like the effect of some of the stitches - what they make
with the gingham
For Christmas I thought it was good to stitch a tree -
à la Mary Corbet. (go to her site Needle n'Thread
and you will find more trees)
Finally, dear readers, I wish you a very happy Christmas
and a good and healthy New Year.
