One New stitch down......one to go......

Moving along on the Sherri Jones class piece. A new to me stitch was called for to fill in the cornucopia....the Peruvian Loop stitch (variation). I'm not convinced I've done it right but, after numerous practice sessions, decided to go with it. It does add some "texture" to the cornucopia; it's the filling for the narrow bands. It's staying put now, but I'm hoping Sherri may give us a "mini" lesson so I can be sure how it's done correctly.



 The next new stitch goes along the top and bottom edges and is the Three-Sided Pulled Stitch (variation). I've been practicing that too, but it's time to bite the bullet and put it in place. I'll post when it's done. After that, it's on to the pre-stitch for another Sherri class. 

If I'm not back before Sunday, Happy Easter to all! Hope you have a beautiful day!!!

Thanks for stopping by an your "twisted threads" of friendship!

  4. Your piece looks great! You'll be a star student in class! I applaud your ambition for trying to get the other pre-stitch work done also -I am far, far behind you.

    Happy Easter!
