My house is healthier…my husband made it to work today. I made a run to my local needlework shop to pick up whatever fibers caught my eye, mainly perle cotton #5, clearance silk, and a new pattern…as if I needed a new chart! The shop is very close to Woodlawn Plantation, which is getting ready for their annual needlework show and sale. (link: http://www.woodlawnpopeleighey.org/visitneedlework/ ), which runs the entire month of March.
Today on my hoop I added bird #2’s eye. I decided not to use a french knot, because I felt the knot would need to be so big that it would leap off the hoop!
Stitch: Satin Stitch
Fiber: Weeks Dye Works in Whitewash, 2 ply used.
