Moving along now...

Still dancing from my finish yesterday but I'm moving on to my next project that I had hoped to have finished this week, after the sheer amount of stitching I did yesterday and the little amount of canvas covered, I don't know that I will accomplish that but I'm sure going to try


The Herringbone row, the brown diamond pattern that is completed on each side of center, was 6 journeys each with a different thread. The finished result is fabulous but UGH I hate stitching the same thing multiple times. I've now gotten a start on the next row which is a palm leaf if I remember right, done with 2 needles. Now I should have remembered this from David McCaskill and Toni Minieri designs. Something about men as designers, they love to layer thread. The end result is definitely worth the effort but I hate having 2 needles going at once ;)


This is my newest needlework gadget. A Thread Clam from K's Creations. It holds Kreinik thread as you can see and has holes in the top to feed the thread through to make working with multiple spools a lot easier. The velcro bit on the side holds the tails too keep everything nice and neat. I actually wish I had another, I may pick one up next time I'm at the LNS as there are still more metallics in Mojave and I've found I really like having the threads in the clam.
