STITCH OF THE MONTH

This “no name” stitch is worked on the diagonal over three rows. Each row will be a diagonal line (not vertical or horizontal). After one row is completed, the next is worked the same way but with the end of the stitch going down between the two stitches of the row next to it. It sounds confusing but is truly a quick and easy background stitch that gives an unusual lacy effect. Stop in and we’ll give you a tutorial.

TIP OF THE MONTH

Can’t remember that background stitch on a project you did 
a year ago? Try keeping a STITCH JOURNAL
 Keep track of the stitches and threads you use on your projects. Make notes on whether you liked the stitch and/or fiber used and whether you liked it for the area you stitched it.  This page was taken from the back of the Stitches To Go book many people use for stitch reference but you can create a similar notebook yourself with categories customized to your needs.  The customer who told me about her stitch journal also mentioned she takes pictures of her works and adds these to her note pages.  Brilliant.

FINISHED PROJECTS OF THE MONTH
