A Couple Stitches.....
Once I finished decorating, adding a few more fresh evergreen boughs, I didn't have time for much stitching. Guess at this time of the year I should be happy for anytime to hand stitch at all.
Next up the tree trunk. Hmmmm.....finally I decided to do a Whipped Backstitch using 2 different threads. First I did the Backstitch in wool thread that really just blended with the fabric. Then I did the whip stitching in a variegated Perle Cotton to add dimension and texture. I like the look if I do say so myself.
Thanks for stopping by, we'll see what tomorrow will bring.
