This sailboat was a line drawing and I traced it onto a

piece of linen. It is stitched with the split stitch. Simple lines and good texture;

that is what this little stitching is about. I am not sure what to make with it,

but am leaning towards a Nook cover because it is about that size. Any suggestions?

There are new bags today in my store.

I used canvas to make these, they are sturdy and

.

durable and washable.

I’ve sewn a verse inside each bag – Psalm 139: 4-6

Before a word is on my tongue you Lord, know it completely.

You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Song of Solomon 2:4 Let him lead me to the banquet hall,

and let his banner over me be love.

I like to put a verse inside my bag as a reminder

throughout the day of my faith.

This is a little project I stitched a few weeks ago. It is from a coloring book, which is a great source for line drawings to stitch. I stitched it using the stem stitch which turned out kind of jagged but it could also be said it gives it a little ‘texture.’ Hopefully I will master the stem stitch like the ones in this tutorial from Mary Corbet’s Needle N’ Thread , but I must say that I love texture in everything, so I like it!
