Happy Hump Day!
Here is my latest finished segment of Tradewinds. I had some extra time to stitch when I was sick, though I didn’t stitch the whole time I was sick.
Another Wipocalypse passed while I was sick… It was the first or second day of my fever, though, so I didn’t get a chance to participate. The question was about the stitches I look forward to, and frankly I love almost every specialty embroidery stitch. I love the process of learning them and seeing how prettily they turn out. There are a few button hole stitches that I haven’t mastered, though. They came up in the Around The World sampler, and it irritated me so much that I put the whole thing down, not touching it since. I’ll get back to it sometime.
Anyway, here is a full progress pic of Tradewinds. Since I had to move my q snaps, I thought I might take a whole picture! I am really excited about how well it is coming along! I am also happy to report that my new backstitch tracking with the sharpie us working out quite well. I was able to backstitch the dolphin quite quickly with that method.
