Thanks to Wendy, I've discovered a new blog, Do You Mind If I Knit? Vanessa knits, sews, gardens, illustrates children's books, has an Etsy shop, and makes wonderful creatures like Evangeline!
Jane LaFazio featured my prayer flags on the prayer flag blog: The Prayer Flag Project: hand stitched prayer flags! How exciting is that? I've been so surprised and pleased by the comments about my prayer flags! As I mentioned in a post a while back, Jane's blog Janeville was one of my inspirations in deciding to create the prayer flags.
This week's TAST stitch is the Cretan stitch, and it gave me quite a bit of trouble. It would turn into the feather stitch or I'd fail to get the thread under the needle. Again, I'm not to great at improvising new variations, but others are. I've seen some wonderful and complex designs that I've admired...as I struggled to get the basic stitch to flow.
Anyone have big plans for the weekend?
