TAST (from the past): Buttonhole Stitch Sampler

I stitched this postcard on a painted and yarn-embellished Peltex background. I didn’t start with any kind of plan or design. What a joy it was to just let the threads sort of do their thing - and not worry about counting! I’m not quite sure if this is done, but I will put it aside and let it percolate awhile. Hmmmm, looking around the studio, there seems to be an awful lot of percolatin’ going on…

I love the texture you are building up, it is a very tactile piece,
Conni I hope you are not where the 100 inches of snow is, keep warm,

Thanks, Frances. We seem to be getting more rain than snow!
