In September, I set the Haworth Stitch Group a challenge to make a scarf using fine cotton cheesecloth and appliqued shapes. This group of talented and creative ladies have surpassed my expectations to produce the most wonderful work. Here is Liz's scarf. She used a series of interconnecting circles to create a pattern and then stitched over them with split stitch and chain stitch. The effect is stunning!
The latest addition to this year's Christmas decorations: a sleepy reindeer embellished with folk art stitches. My new go-to stitch is whipped chain. You can see it here looking like a green and white candy cane. Lay the chain stitch down in green and then whip each stitch with white. Simple!
