Judy and the Feather Stitch
Our snowy weather has been ideal for stitching and knitting. I've been trying to arrange my stitching thread according to the color wheel, so that's why this week's thread looks almost the same as last week's. It's not....it's called flesh, and I used it on SBS's arm. (Can anyone tell me where brown fits in?) In digging through my embroidery books, I found the Reader's Digest Complete Book of Embroidery languishing on the shelf. It had a couple of interesting variations on the feather stitch which I tried. You can see it took me a while to catch on to the closed feather. Then I had to figure out where to put the feather stitch in my SBS block. Can you find it?
If you wish, you can check my blog to see what's on my other needles.
