This month's theme is: What is your favorite stitch other than the standard cross stitch? (bonus points if you provide a how-to link or diagram it on your blog post!) I think last year I said satin stitch. It's still my favorite, but recently I've come to appreciate the good old back stitch and couching stitch. You can do so much with it especially when you start using beads or gold threads and cords.
I did very well this month :) One night I took Bramble and the Rose to a guild meeting, so there is a tiny bit of progress here. See if you can spot it.

I was asked to come to a Stitcher's Rendez-vous :) On Sundays there are music concerts in the hall we use for guild meetings and there is a room visitors can come to before the concert to watch demonstrations from our embroidery guild and the spinners and weavers guild. It's a way for us to promote Embroidery and the guild. I decided to take Romantic Rosebud and managed to get some progress on weaving some leaves. It was really fun, I hope I get asked to come again.

Three updates in one post! While waiting for the next Pearl Butterfly lesson, I took out Fleurs de Sakura and got some more leaves appliqued.

Speaking of Pearl Butterfly, this is a project I've been working on a lot this month. If you want to see what it looks like click here for my previous post. Tomorrow I will be posting my latest progress from the weekend.
