HARVEST MOON HOUSE FEE NEE

Oh, what a complete and total joy this was to stitch!  I learned so much and felt like such a freakin' rock star the entire time it was in my hands that I didn't want to put it down.  Don't you love it when a designer makes you feel like you actually might someday have half a clue of what you're doing?  Who's better than Ms. P for that, I ask you?

And can I give a big shout out to Miss Charlene, Her Also Very Fabulous Self for a wonderful tip about bullion knots....(use a Milners' needle so that the entire length of the needle is the same circumference and the little knots slip off easier....who knew?  and Miss Elizabeth of Needlepoint Now fame, Her Also Very Fabulous Self Too for a great how-to video on the YouTube that made learning how to actually do the damn little bullion knots very very simple.

Thanks, girls!  You ROCK!

  6. Congratulations on your beautiful finish! It's been really fun to watch you bring this project alive :) Milliner's needles are an amazing help for bullion knots, and French knots too! It's a trick I picked up from Mary Corbet at Needle N Thread ;)
