This week's stitch (Knotted Loop Stitch) is really more for borders though it does make nice leaves. It just didn't fit with anything I found in history for the day. Or should I say the missing day? One of 10 missing days to be exact for the year of 1582 in several European countries.
Different countries chose to switch to the Gregorian calendar at different times. I wonder how those paychecks back then were worked out?
