Some Lady Power Love

Today I was reminded of this brilliant moment:

so I took a little liberty and made this:

Then I figured other people might like to make one so here’s a pattern:

Week 45 of the #YearOfStitch : Rapid Stitch

Still playing catch up so I thought the rapid stitch might inspire me to shake my tail feather and get caught up! This stitch is a joy to stitch.

Photo time:

4 over and 4 up

you are starting with a basic cross stitch

Here’s how it looks when you use it as a filler stitch

Happy Stitching!

#YearOfStitch Bonus Week! : Queen Stitch

I just can’t stop myself. One of our #YearOfStitch friends asked me to please add Queen Stitch to the mix because she was having trouble with it. I can’t say no. This is a tricky stitch. I tried stitching it a few different ways and this stitch is really temperamental. I thought if I started with the backstitches and then wove the vertical stitches through it would simplify the stitch - it did but it also distorted the stitch. This is just one of those stitches that has to be done in a specific way. I’ll talk you through it. 

The photos will help…

Key: Don’t pull this thread taught yet!

The first horizontal stitch is meant to tack down the vertical stitch 

Now you can pull it taught.

Regal right?

So you can use this as a border but I like it as a filler. Here’s how they all tetris together.

Rad right?

Enjoy your bonus!
