Stitching along with Janet Brandt

It has been a long time since I posted anything, and in fact, I'm surprised I posted as much as I did in 2015. It was a very dry year for creativity. Toward the end of the year things picked up and I will show what I finished for Christmas gifts eventually. I really needed a kick start to get my creative juices flowing, and Janet Brandt provided it by posting a free-for-all stitch along. There are no real rules, just a pattern for which she is posting her own stitching progress. It is fanciful and fun and there is no pressure. Just what I need right now! So, I downloaded the pattern, drew it on my fabric and bought my floss. My progress will be much slower than hers, but I am looking forward to stitching for the fun of it. If you want to stitch along too, you can find Janet's pattern and posts on her blog.

As you can see, my pattern isn't perfectly copied (it was hard to see the pattern through the dark fabric), but that is ok. I'm not worrying. I'm just stitching! I'll show my progress next week.

  1. glad you are stitching this too Margo I have downloaded it too but think I will do quite a bit of it in red work style have emailed Janet and she said that would be okay, still got to put it on fabric but have printed put the pattern, good to see you back on your blog and still able to access it with the changes google has made, have lost quite a lot of followers due to changes.
