Welcome to the weekly celebration of hand stitching! Why not join us today as we make time to enjoy the benefits of relaxation with our favourite projects?
I finished a knitted face/dishcloth this week and am very pleased with how it turned out. Look at how much yarn was left... that was really close! I am enjoying my needle threader and my Bohin needles for embroidery and for stitching in the yarn ends.
This "cherry blossom" Sudz yarn was lovely to work with. And the pattern from Knitwits Heaven was excellent. There is a whole section for parent themed patterns, and a large selection of other interesting patterns (no affiliation, just a happy customer). This will be for a Mother's Day gift and next I'll work on #1 Dad for Father's Day. It's so satisfying to give a hand made gift for special occasions, don't you think?
When that was done, I went back to my fall Kawandi quilt that was started in an online class with Sujata Shah. As you can see I am having a very hard time keeping the stitch length consistent, but am really enjoying the hand stitching process. Don't tell Sujata that I am using pins as that is a definite "no! no!" I can't help myself as it's hard to keep everything in place otherwise. What are you hand stitching today?
