My February Week of Sewing - Day 4

today was Featherstitching day…

I spent the morning, embroidering by the fire.

Taking breaks for tea and a book.

I had built the fire up to a blazing heat. 
 So my Brown Dog took his nap behind my chair.

I love to Featherstitch.  
It is a rhythm stitch.  This stitch requires a bit of warming up until I reach the rhythm where the stitches fall in into place and I am picking up the same amount of fabric in my needle each time.  And I am moving down the design line evenly.  It's a good feeling….

and all is good with my world.

Sounds divine! Our new house will only have gas fireplaces, Better for indoor pollution and not as messy, but still, I will miss the wood burning.

I love featherstitching too. Fun and easy and beautiful.

We had a Chocolate lab several years ago. She was 12 when she died. We still miss her. I love to see Strider. Reminds me of Molly.

happy stitching!
