And a very sincere Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Holidays to one and all. To get over the hangover of the holidays, here's a sweet and easy small space stitch that adds a little somethin' somethin' to what may be a boring space.
While this is an absolute riff on the Alternating Plain Needlepoint post I did a few weeks ago, there is something about the texture of the French Knots that make this stand out. On the stitched sample below, you can see I had nothing but small spaces. The French Knot texture, along with the thread color, helped further differentiate the area.
These stitch diagrams, along with all other #whimsicalwednesday and #smallspacesunday stitch diagrams, can also be found on a Pinterest board here.
If you like what you see on this blog, want to learn some very creative decorative stitches, and how to put them all together, whimsicalstitch.com sells stitch guides for Melissa Shirley Designs and Zecca Designs. 28 guides are currently available and more are in the pipeline. I'm hoping to have some definitive news to share about projects in the pipeline very soon!
Okay, back to whatever you are doing! I hope it is not cleaning up as that is what children and grandchildren are for. Hope you have/had a wonderful holiday. Only nine months until next year's holiday finishing deadline! Hurry!
