CLICK HERE to go to Sharon’s It’s Daffycat blog to read all about the Totally Useless SAL and discover why I’m posting pictures of thread snippets, otherwise known as orts.
I’m happy that the Silly Stitching Calendar says I had 19 stitching days since last month’s TUSAL check in. In that time, I’ve finished Band 13 of Jane Turner and made a good start on Band 14 while collecting a pleasing little pile of orts.
Thought I was going to stitch the large green line/band first so I could use it as a reference for where the flowers go. Uh, nope. Turns out I needed to stitch flowers to know where the green band goes. Maybe Jane and her 17th century friends and fellow students didn’t get confused by Montenegrin stitch - applause for them! - but I find it especially befuddling when it’s on the diagonal.
Since I’ve already made some intentional changes in the stitching, I gave in to my
compulsion desire for balance and symmetry
and made that lower dark blue flower the same on both sides.
Looks like I have a couple of new followers - welcome, I'm glad you're here!
Hope everyone's weekend is starting off well and you have lots of lovely sunshine. And that your snow is melting! Thanks for stopping by!
