Happy New Year
My Mother has started to stitch on the “King Louis” Papillon needlepoint project that I gave her for Christmas. She is using various stitch changes to accent the color changes throughout the hair.
I think he is turning out adorable!! I will continue to update and will get some closer detail of the stiches for you to see.

I just purchased “Desert Island Stitches”. This guide is written by Carole Lake and Michael Boren of StitchPlay.com.
I love the straightforward, conversational tone in the narrative of the book. It is spiral bound so it lays nice and flat while you are stitching. The stitches are grouped into various categories making it easy to navigate.
Labelled as “Volume One”, I will be looking forward to Volume Two.
