Perhaps this is an old idea I returned to last night. I was thinking about the stitches I’ve been focusing on this year and trying to unwind from work. So I doodled with a little stitch that looks like an “A”. Of course, I couldn’t resist adjusting things from there.
Here is a quick step through:
Here are thoughts that came to mind on using it.
Now turning a corner, I want to draw attention to a new blog, I’ve recently started following. Anne Stradal of The Cape Stitcher has just finished a series of posts on transferring one of her father’s pen and ink drawing to a needlepoint canvas. Anne has given many helpful comments and tips in these posts. I’ve gleaned much along the way in addition to the delight of seeing the print come to life in needlepoint. Many thanks, Anne. I’m looking forward to your next project.
Best wishes to all for the new year. Many thanks to all that take time to swing by and visit the QM blog. And special thanks to those of you who have kindly taken time to write a comment. Although I’ve not always been able to acknowledge each one this year due to some family situations, your encouragement has come through. I appreciate it very much. And I have learned and gained much especially from the insightful comments on beauty and design. I’m still working on the design project so those comments are continuing to guide my thoughts in many ways.
