I have the second gingerbread house pattern in hand now (my long term project). Haven't yet traced it off however. Instead I started a new tea towel with this pattern set:
I won't be making the scalloped hem or adding lace as I've begun with a towel that's already hemmed. That's a bit frou-frou for my taste anyway. 😉
I've put one flower and butterfly in each of the lower corners of the towel.
I don't see much scope for playing around with fancy stitches but that's okay. This makes for easy, mindless stitching.
There's been a bit of progress on the foxes pillow cover too, although it may be difficult to tell. Let's see, this is where it was last time...
And this is what it looks like now:
Oh! more than I thought! Good for me. 😀I confess, after playing around with other stitches elsewhere I get tired of just backstitching all the time. There are times, however, when it's helpful not to have to have the brain engaged while stitching.
