Things are really hopping here in Serendipityville. We’re already half-way through the first week of the 2020 Stitch Challenge and I’m getting ready for my brand new workshop. The workshop, Stitch Guides Made Simple LIVE! is happening on October 17th and it’s all about the process I use to write needlepoint stitch guides. I’m really excited about it!

Using knotted stitches for flower centers is one of my favorite ways to add texture to a needlepoint canvas.

I’m having soooo much fun sharing all of these different canvas embroidery stitches that you can use to embellish your needlepoint projects. Thank you for joining me! 🙂 Now, let’s do a quick recap of what we’ve covered so far: straight stitches, slanted stitches, and crossed stitches.  And this week, we’re gonna take a peek at knotted stitches.
