Sharon's Take A Stitch Tuesday Challenge Has Begun!

Good Morning everyone! I am still a bit under the weather here. Well, actually more than a bit! Today I will be parking myself on my sofa, stitching and watching movies. I am hoping by tomorrow, the worst of this will have passed and I can get on with my usual routine of buzzing around the house and doing my thing. I'm not one to sit still for long periods of time but I guess that's how today will have to be.

Sharon started off her "Take A Stitch Tuesday Challenge" with the Herringbone stitch. I'll admit, this has never been one of my favorites. I'm not sure why I never really liked it. I use it on occasion but it always looks too straight to me. I think I like stitches that have a scallop to them.

I gathered a bit of strength a few minutes ago and dug through my stash in search of a piece of 14 count Aida. I decided to actually play with this stitch a bit and see if I can't make the Herringbone into something that I do like.

I'm really not a formal person and would prefer not to keep a stitch dictionary or start a journal on this. I just thought I'd work these stitches like a sampler on fabric and see what I come up with. So please check back tomorrow to see what I do with this.

Also, stop back shortly for Part 1 of the Dryer Sheet Pansy tutorial. I'll have that ready and published in a few minutes. First, I need to drag myself into my kitchen and get some juice!
