After years of hating any kind of hand stitching, I've lately become obsessed with it. I think it's because it's fairly portable (perfect for afternoons at the park or at the pool) and the repetitive motions are very calming.
Up until now, the only stitch I've been able to reproduce with any accuracy is the blanket stitch. Then, at our last Drunken Bunkin', Denise showed me how to do a chain stitch. I've been wanting to practice it, but haven't had a good project - til now.
Last week (or the week before) Joanie at NiniMakes had a blog giveaway. To every person who entered, she emailed an adorable little birdie pattern. It was the perfect project to practice my chain stitching. Thank you Joanie!!!
