This is a quick post for Debby.
The stitch is Dotted Swiss, makes a good background stitch. Very easy to compensate. Great for a snowy background, try it with Kreinik Marshmallow #8. This is my favorite white color. Speaking of threads, have you seen Ruth’s Color Party over at Bedecked and Beadazzled? It is a great way to add some threads to your stash for future use. Or just to try some threads you may never have used. This is one club that I will be joining. I have been very good and not signed up for many clubs. The last one was Hooty. I had to have those owls, owls are one of my favorite animals, along with cats and dogs, then whales, foxes, oh, ok I am an animal lover!! Charley Harper always calls my name.
Have a great day stitching everyone.
