Usually, I try to stitch on the Elizabeth Almond "Save the Stitches" SAL, where I am about two months behind, but I am also behind on Take a Stitch Tuesday (four stitches worth) and the July Bead Journal Project atc/ornament. SO this weekend, I tried to spread my time among the three projects...
So, on Friday, I started on TAST. The stitches to be stitched are/were:
- #118 - Beaded Buttonhole Stitch (I tried two versions and STILL can't keep my buttonholes on a straight line or with even edges!):
- #119 - Woven Trellis Stitch (which you can also see in the above photo of buttonhole stitches):
- ##120 - 121 - Double Herringbone (top) and Twisted Lattice (bottom) Stitches:
On Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon, I started the beading on my July Bead Journal Project atc/ornament. As you can see, my every-other-month Snowy Owl is wrapping himself in patriotic colors for July:
