Hello people. During a chore break I popped a few Dove chocolates and quickly browsed Pinterest. A stitch I had not heard of, the Palestrina stitch, caught my eye. Of course the detailed instructions came from the best online source of stitches, Needle 'n Thread.
This looks like a great method for a finished edge, whether used to close the seam or added to a sewn seam.
Here's what the finished edge looks like (from her website) and you can find more about it here.
My house project ran into more snags (big surprise) when I found more split and lifted wood in the doors. We fixed the miter but can't budge the crack to glue and clamp.
I ordered 16 1/4" width and one of them is. The other three are close to 16 1/2". Dominic made the cabinets for 16 1/4" doors, but I'm sure they will be fine. If not, we'll get some hot dogs for the fire. I'm making progress and had them work on the paint color which came out about 15 shades darker than the sample. I bought the new water borne alkyd and it's wonderful, but I may end up with latex.
Some progress made on the BBD sampler. First time I ever did the square stitch (that's what I call the 4-sided stitch), that I can remember anyway. It's not a tedious stitch but I'm glad to be on the eyelets and back to the crosses. Aging this when finished will probably be with the pearl gray Rit instead of walnut or browns. This linen is a warm color and I would prefer to tone it down. The dividing bands between the square stitch are charted the same but I did a regular cross because as usual, I wasn't paying attention. I don't care for the pink and 3860 together in the double band so tried gray half way through and will probably remove the 3860.
I did get a new printer but haven't added it to the network or tried the colors. I found some large really nice lined notebooks that I would love to label. Most of the week will be finalizing the counter tops, browsing and choosing a sink and faucet, (all online and unseen since we have nothing around here) and will end with another hospital trip for sis. She has to have the cardioversion done early Friday.
Be good and stay safe.
Have a good week and thanks for visiting.
