Judy ~ Sheaf Stitch and August Reveal
Wow, I sure hate to see the end of August! Where 2012 is going so fast is beyond me, that's for sure. I used the sheaf stitch to add a little interest to Sue's sleeves and had fun fiddling around with the trim on her dress and bonnet. The cabled chain (it's a silvery grey not blue!) worked perfectly on the swing and was also a good review. Most of these new stitches sure aren't automatic for me yet. Now that I've finished 8 blocks, I'm thinking it's about time for a trip to the fabric store. Any suggestions? Because the blocks are 9 inches, I'll probably just sash them and do a border. Happy Labor Day to those of you celebrating!
