Please excuse the wrinkles; I didn't take time to press this beauty which I am growing rather fond of especially since the two blue birds in the tree were added!
I'm going to put this one away for awhile now. Tonight I put a few more over one stitches in "I Sigh." I'm thinking I'd like to do a little patriotic stitching this week...
Before I forget, Beth asked me how I attached the chenille to the pincushion (post from 26June) - I sew my chenille trim on; I believe it's called a "couching stitch". If you match your thread color closely to the color of the chenille you won't even notice the thread. I usually try to twist the chenille as I go. I have also glued the chenille down on some of my other finishes.
Hope you are all staying cool -- it's much warmer here than it normally is. On days like this I am reminded of why I like our winters so much!
