Inspiration for a quilt
Op Shopping

A busy week ahead (& TAST)

Oh boy, I don't like the look of my dairy.  I have babysitting Monday, Teaching Tuesday, Up to Toowoomba again Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.  Back Saturday to set up the "Secondhand Rose" table for the Mother's Day Fair which will fill Sunday and then it starts again.

I am behind with my Take a Stitch Tuesday pincushions and my Kogin embroidery patterns as well! (Don't even think about the patchwork and quilting.)

Stitch 61 - Up and Down Feather Stitch

This is one of my favourite stitches so it was no bother to stitch this piece.  I first stitched it in a random manner around the pincushion using a fine variagated perle thread from Stef Fancis.  I then used chain stitch in a watercolor thread for the flowers, and then, using one strand of a silk thread stitched isolated up and down feather stitch beside the ones I had stitched first.  To move the thread from one flower to the next I worked small chain stitches on the branch.

I like this stitch so much I also worked it around the join at the bottom.

It looks delightful. So far everyone I have met who has retired has told me they can't think how they found the time to work!
