Oh yes; on the design wall? Some of the blocks for the 'Secret Project'. :-)
And this is what I finished earlier this afternoon:
|TAST Week 12 - Barred Chain Stitch|
I was glad when Sharon B called for a week's break in the challenge, because it took me a while to get my head around this variation on a chain stitch. When at last I did, though, I thought it made for a very pretty trellis. The necktie used in this one was, I believe, the one my DH wore with his baby blue polyester leisure suit (complete with epaulettes and contrasting black buttons) to go on our honeymoon. (1975...what a year!) The funky textured bits are pieces of a narrow knit scarf I came across at a thrift store.
Why are there no comments here!?
Your studio is awesome - nice & bright. Is that a Canada Day quilt?? I see redwork too I think? Hard to tell... Your stitches and choice of colors in the last photo is melting me! Oh it's sooo sooo delicious. : )
Glad I stopped by.
(p.s. it's raining now, but freezing & will be sleet & snow next! aaaah!
I can't imagine snow in April! (Its in the 80's here.) Your studio looks so inviting....bright and cheerful! I love your stitching. That is a beautiful piece!
Very nicely done barred chain stitching :)
