texture and color
I really tried to keep up with this on a daily basis. And I didn’t even commit to a finished item, just that days worth of work. But I don;t think I can keep up with any project daily… Just too busy… kids (one sick this week), other things that need to be done. And sometimes I just collapse into bed in the evening. Oh, well. But I don;t want to get discouraged… Let’s say a hundred of these in a year? Or maybe once a week, which would make it 52? You can see how well I can plan ahead… 😉
I believe this is called an Raised Fishbone Stitch.
Same stitch, worked different ways to produce different effect.
I made this one up. I am sure it has a name but I don’t know it. This is seriously calming…
Bad light… But you get the idea… I think I am a little obsessed with needle weaving.

I tried a couple of things… at the top – I tried to replicate knitted linen stitch. I like that stitch especially in variegated yarn. The circle was made by laying down perpendicular lines of yarn and then securing them down to the linen with cross stitch at intersections. Circle outlined in backstitch. And in the middle – some plaited stitch again. I love the pattern this yarn makes.
