Randy and I finished up our shopping at Bellevue Square where they have “Snowflake Lane” each night during the holidays. He’s now entertaining us playing an assortment of Christmas music, Broadway show tunes, and pieces from the 20’s to the 50’s. I’m at a distinct disadvantage with “Name That Tune” for that era, since I wasn’t even born yet, but my Mom is having a great time!
Knotted Blanket Stitch
Since I always like to keep my hands busy, I’m working on an edging stitch for one of my embroidery samplers. I decided to do a Knotted Blanket Stitch, which I’ll show how to do here:
Step 1- Make a loop
Step 2 – Needle through loop and above the lower thread from last stitch
Step 3- Pull loop tight around needle
Step 4 – Pull thread through, making sure that loop stays tight to form knot
