A VERY STITCHY DAY INDEED!

Finally! I feel like I accomplished a major goal...stay in jams and stitch for an entire day! Mission accomplished!

First up was Red Velvet Cake:

And then I finally decided on a stitch for the border of Big Red Sunflower (after sixteen years!):

The black squares are ultrasuade patches the are sewn on with black DMC.

When I get the border finished I'm going to add black shiny beads randomly around the center and then get this to the framer! This will hang in the bedroom and will really look cool now that I have boack and white buffalo check on the bed.

Tme to get ready for the d-chair, Dearies! It's Friday, so I hope this means we're off to a good start to the weekend!

  1. RVC is looking fabulous, Coni. I love the sunflower piece. How do you attach the black suede blocks? With a tacking stitch, blanket stitch or what?
