I’m really enjoying the hand embroidery on the Crazy Quilt (my latest doll quilt) and bought a second book with some stitches at Borders today. I also had to check out the stitch library books that Amazon has so now I have a couple of those on order. I guess I’ll have to do at least one more project after this one to get my money’s worth. I did mention that I’m addicted to books didn’t I? My basket with all my supplies is pictured below.
Before I let myself work on this project today, I’m going to try and finish up Mom’s top that I started quilting yesterday.
These blocks are pretty busy so the stitches aren’t showing up all that well but that’s OK because it helps hide the flaws. My favorite thread so far has been the size 8 perle cotton but I don’t have but 5-6 colors of it. I did buy some more floss at Joann’s today. The size 5 perle cotton I have seems too thick but I did find some couching techniques in the new book where it might work.
