Is is hot here in West Cleveland today! So glad to have air conditioning!! I hope you all are enjoying the week wherever you are 🙂
Today I am bringing you one of my favorite stitches, this is a Padded Herringbone. I love the Herringbone stitch in all its variations, it is great for a border over one, or work rows of Herringbone. It is a fun stitch.
With the Padded Herringbone I first stitched the Satin Stitches, then stitched the Herringbone on top. Isn’t this pretty? Sorry I can’t show the rest of the canvas, but it is a surprise for someone. Once it is completely finished you will see the whole piece, for now you will see snippets of the canvas 😸
The Satin Stitches were stitched using one strand of Neon Rays. My tension became a little tighter toward the end so you can see a little canvas showing through.
The Herringbone was stitched using one strand of Kreinik Fine (#8) Braid. I really do love how it looks! Looking at it I can also imagine it as a fancy belt on a Santa…..what do you all think?
Before I used the Neon Rays, I ran it through my flat-iron on the low heat setting, this takes all the kinks in the thread out.
Next I have to show you this months magnet from Bedecked & Beadazzled’s magnet club, it is lovely and blingy!! I am still loving my monthly magnets, they just make me happy!😊
As always I have a few kitty pictures for you. First up does your cat like Guacamole? Well Tango loves the stuff! I left a little out on the table on Sunday and went outside for a few minutes, when I came back in the Guacamole was gone, but the guac footprints were everywhere!🙀 I was fuming for a few minutes😤, now I have to remember no food can be left out!
Beardie has also been very generous and left me a lovely flower last week, a headless chipmunk!🌹 I know I should be thrilled, but it was a little disgusting, right on the step by the sliding glass door.
Since you haven’t seen Beardie in a while here she is again by her favorite chair, my recliner 😁
Now Stimpy looks a lot like her mum, just with shorter hair.
Noe can never not get in on the photo action!
No photo of Tango today because he is really challenging to capture, he hates his picture being taken!
That’s all for today folks, have a great rest of the week and put a few stitches in for me as well 😺
