In December I posted about Take a Stitch Tueday, a stitch along project that would feature a new embroidery stitch every week. The challenge is to learn the stitch, or if you already know it, take it a step further.
I played catch up this week and did the first three weeks.
My sampler is very simple compared to the work of some stitchers- there are some really incredible pieces of art. You can visit their work by clicking the links in the comments of this post, or see some highlights here and here.
And now, on to the French General necklace. When I posted the first picture of what I had put together, I thought it might be kind of a running joke- every week I'd be showing another set of three beads linked together.
The joke was on me-last Tuesday, Karla showed me an easy way to make the little links. Yesterday, I started playing with my necklace, and I couldn't put it down. I finished, and even wore it to work today- and NOTHING fell off or came apart.
