Since I didn't need to actually catch up on anything I decided to try out what others have been playing with. Shisha Work!
This was a fun little project and very freeing since it was so random. I used some pearl cotton but mostly 6 strands of floss, incorporating lazy daisy, french knot, straight, stem and cross stitches with a silk ribbon bow.
I didn't choose a historical event this week, but in case you would like one... Houston, TX was incorporated in the Republic of Texas on June 5, 1837. You did know Texas is the only state that was once it's own country, right?
