Back to Basics

With needle and thread, I started quilting my Stitch Tease quilt. I am using white DMC perle cotton on the stars to start with.


The very tiny baby stars are not so easy to stitch, but stitch them I shall. I get untold satisfaction wielding needle and thread. It just makes me happy.

  9. Happiness is to be cherished and desired at all times, therefore you MUST stitch. As usual, I am loving your fabric choices and the work you do.
