Gone Fishing August 16 2014
Stitching "gone fishing"... Began with the background, in a Jacquard Stitch. Too structured for the particular theme that I'm going for...a coastal cottage. Ripped it all out...is it just me, or does this happen to you, too?
So, I tweaked it a bit on graph paper and came up with this new stitch that I'm calling "Wave Stitch".
The fibers I am using are all from Weeks Dye Works, an environmentally friendly company where everything is made right here in the United States.
Background: #3 Pearl Cotton in #1166 Sea Foam and Cotton Floss #1166 Sea Foam. The color of Sea Foam reminds me of sea Glass and wave ripples on a pristine beach...perfect for this project!
Lettering: #3 Pearl Cotton in #1191 Whitewash.
Here's the Stitch Guide for the "Wave Stitch"
