Say Goodbye for now

Fuzzy overview on Sunday morning 

French knots instead of blue beads

 I gave up on the bead hunt and went with French knots using three strands of silk.  I like the way it turned out.

 I worked on this girl almost all day yesterday.  All I had left to do was the black edging of her robe up by the collar.  The Kreinik got a knot in it and I was defeated.  I could not deal with the knot and the compensating.  I put her down and picked up my basketweave pillow.  I will finish her today and the next time you see her, she will be back from the finishers.


  1. She's very cute and you finished her up quickly. I am impressed. Hurry and get her made up so we can admire her, ok?

  2. She is darling. I can't wait to see her all finished. Stitch away, Steph. I'm in the garden today! ;-)

  3. I wish I could say I was in the garden. I can say I am in the grass pulling weeds. So many came up after the rain. I will be stitching away tonight. Next weekend I will be at a tennis tournament. All major stitching for awhile will be over at bedtime tonight!

  4. Isn't it amazing how something as small as a knot can derail a project?
