I've used several stitches so far on my first prayer flag; lots of fly stitching, but several other stitches for the text and the leaf. I would like to include at least two TAST stitches per flag, so I need to save room for the next announced stitch.
I ordered some linen thread and some Aubusson embroidery wool from Hedgehog Handworks. I've never used either, but can't wait to try, and to make threading a bit easier-- especially for beading needles--I couldn't resist the brass threader!
A word about Hedgehog--I ordered on Tuesday, and it arrived today! Also, I got a call Tuesday after placing my order, and the nicest person informed me that one of the colors I ordered was temporarily out of stock. She suggested a substitution, and I agreed. Don't you love friendly, courteous, thoughtful, and prompt service?
