Crochet update ....
I know many of you are doing the Stitch A long but I thought I would post something I worked on last week. I do get tired of counting , checking charts, and making mistakes. Yes I made many on this Stitch A Long part #1. It was like something did not want me to do it but I am stubborn and would not give up :)
I had to FROG about 4 separate times for such a small area but keep in mind it was just me not paying attention. So my alternative when the sun goes down is to crochet. I free-formed this piece that I am using for a doily on my table in the studio. I just love all of the colors and no pattern to follow YEAH!!!
I used up my stash of pearl cotton. Hope you are stitching better than I did on part #1
Oh and one more thing I TRIED to iron my Stitch A Long piece to photograph and show you but yes I sprayed to much water and it ran. Weeks Dye Works floss is colorfast now but my stash from long ago is not. My white turned pink and I was not happy so I threw it away. Imagine this is the piece that I frogged 4 times, but my new stitched piece is just fine and I did not have to FROG anything (YET) !!
Just sharing my stitching adventures!!
