We are on the cusp of winter and I am finally finished with my fall wall hanging! Well, better late than never I suppose. Many of you will recognize the wonderful pattern. It was the first Friday Freebie put out by Kaaren of the Painted Quilt.
I love it! I did change it a bit though. Instead of a backstitch, as specified by the pattern, I used a stem stitch ( I think it is sometimes called an outline stitch). For you non-embroiderers out there I basically do a backstitch but instead of butting up against the previous stitch, I overlap halfway. Uses more thread but that is how I learned to embroider eons ago and am comfortable with it.
It will only grace my foyer for a few days this year. Christmas decor will be put up early next week.
On a different note, please forgive me if my postings become less frequent. I have things going on right now that need my attention. I will try to drop by and read your blogs as much as I can as well. I am hoping I will be back up and running full force in a couple of months.
Have a wonderful holiday season everybody! Hugs, Rumi
