The best Xmas Ad ever!
Out to lunch


No housework, no exercise, couldn't go for a swim, I stitched on the weekend.  I now have this one by the throat!  A couple more weeks and all the embroidery will be finished.

And I finally worked out a way to do those isolated stitches without running my thread across the back of my work.  On this fabric it would have really showed through.

I tried taking photos of this but I think a diagram is clearer.

First thing I did was tie a quilter knot in the end of the thread. (There are lots of tutorials on You Tube.)

I'm not sure if this is the correct way to do this, but it works for me.
