If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’ve hosted a winter-themed needlepoint workshop in January for the past couple of years. But I decided to shake things up this year and we’re kicking 2021 off with our sure-to-be-oodles-of-fun Winter Stitch Challenge! It’s absolutely free and I’d love to have you join us.
If you get my weekly emails, you know that my stitching on Mardi Gras Santa came to a halt over the weekend. I don’t have some of the threads that I’d like to use on him, so I ordered them. Now, it’s “hurry up and wait” time. 😉 So, while we’re waiting, let’s chat about a few different stitches that you can use for Santa’s beard on your projects…
Earlier this week, I shared the balloon stitch with you on Needlepoint TV™. It’s a very functional stitch – and it’s one that you can use on your canvases in a variety of ways. It’s a rather large stitch which means you’ll need plenty of space in order to establish the pattern, so keep that in mind when considering it for one of your projects. The balloon stitch is a member of the straight stitch family.
