This is my progress on Grateful Heart by Sharon Cohen. These rather large flowers are done in Irish stitch. According to the instructions it is, anyway, although the diagram is a bit puzzling. After the first row or two I figured it out, and if it isn`t exactly as diagrammed, it turned out ok.
I just love the precise look of this stitch!
The leaves are filled with satin stitch
Next is a row of long armed cross and double running that is exactly like the row above this one, only it is inverted. I`m not too sure about the word 'stitches' in the verse...it is done in a very pale yellow (willow), and it makes it hard to read, so I think i`ll change it. There are lots more changes i`m going to make further down also, but i`ll leave discussing those for another day.
I must admit, I am a little discouraged with the number of comments I get on my blog...some days it feels like no one is reading, so why do I bother? If anyone has any suggestions as to things they would like to see here, please leave me a note.
As always...keep stitching ladies!
