Adding Interest

The 2 1/2" squares were out on the table......
I had a request for a blue table mat
from a sweet older friend.

ONE hop, skip and a jump....
and....
It was done!

Kind of blah....
UNTIL......
the stitching came in!!!

AMAZING.....
what a few stitches can do!!!!

  2. Nina Lise: Can you see the petal/football shape in each square? Each square has a total of FOUR curves. IF...I stitched in THREE of the curves I could do a whole row of squares and then come back through for the last stitch. That way I didn't have to keep starting and stopping. If this doesn't make sense, Let me know. Maybe I'll sketch a picture and post it tomorrow.
