Oh how I love stitching over 1

Ok so no, not really, I don’t love 1 thread over 1 thread but this piece is actually going rather fast considering. Only a few more of these leaves(?) to go and that part will be over, atleast until I get the lid and the emery outline stitched. I hadn’t intended to stitch on this over the weekend, I really wanted to pull Winter Queen back out and get some work done on her, but this is a guild project and its been decided that at our meetings in March and April we will be learning assembly so I need to have this done before then.

I also finally made the decision to knit the “bottle” I wanted to make on double pointed needles instead of dragging myself out to buy yet another set of circular needles that I won’t use again. I have tons of bit of wool yarn laying around and I was again at my sewing machine this weekend reattaching some buttons and wishing for that thing to toss my scissor in as I have no drawers in the sewing table, and this just seems like an excellent way to use up some of this yarn to make room for new stash and all 🙂

  1. Your progress on the shaker sewing box is awesome – you're speeding along! I have to admit, I'm not a fan of over-one stitching on the whole, but I adore the look once it's done … definitely worth the effort! The colour thread you're using is really pretty 🙂
