Progress

I have been stitching on the paisley book cover and I’ve made a fair amount of progress. That’s mainly because I’m doing chain stitch which is fast and using #5 perle cotton. The heavier thread makes a bigger statement and it really works well on felt.  Smaller stitches and thread tend to sink in and disappear.

I’m enjoying working with these bright colors. Now I have to decide where I’m going from here. I don’t think I have enough thread to cover the entire cover so I think I need to find the book to go inside to see how much of the “front” will be showing.

It takes quite a bit of thread to do the detached chain stitch in between the rows of regular chain stitch.
