To make my ominous tree more cheerful, I’ve added a favorite stitch combination to create the leaves. Each leaf is made with a lazy daisy stitch using the size 8 Lettuce colorway of thread. Then the loops of the lazy daisy are filled in with a straight stitch using the Prinky Phlox thread in size 8.
And here’s an update on my studio renovation. The workers started with the flooring. Little round dots of tile will soon cover the entire concrete floor in my basement dye studio. What an improvement! Can’t wait to spill dye all over the new floor so I can swear a lot.
