A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, on the second Loose Feather of FtB... here's a snaperoo...

... when I began stitching on the second part I just left two spaces between the charts and got that bottom section stitched.  Even as I stitched along I really thought about the final image and the 9 parts together - I wasn't as happy as I could have been thinking about the final piece...  I then got on the old computer and started looking for finishes of this as a single piece and how they might look completed.  There are not too many out there but I did find an example where the stitcher had added a vine and flower chain between each of the three rows vertically... me likey!!  

 I frogged out that urn and flowers and figured out my vine addition.  I dug around in the stash and found a green (WDW Kudzu) and blue (WDW Blue Fescue) that I think works well - both of these floss colors are my addition to the called-for blues and greens.  I like the break between the charts since they really have no other connection other than being a series.  They do look a bit odd bumping up against each other.  

I also noticed when I posted this snap that I am off on the right, going back and looking at the actual piece I'm off two threads down, so that means another round of frogging and a re-stitch as that dip to the right is makin' me crazy at the moment!!


That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!



  1. Like the addition of the garland between the two blocks, Edgar! Sorry about the frog issues. Have a marvelous Monday!

    1. Thanks, Robin!! It's my own fault for not paying attention... :(

  2. You are so very prolific...even with the frogs croaking. And, yes, yes, yes to the dividing garland! ~Robin~

    1. Thanks, Robin, I do like the vine break between the charts!!
