Here we are, more of the lovely Tree of Stitches! I think I'm on part 7 or 8 now, though not all of my progress is shown in these photos. The two little green stitches have been joined by most of their buddies, but I haven't taken a more recent picture yet. Next time. :)
So here's the full tree. You'll notice that french knots have still not made their appearance. :p
And a closeup of everything. Of all the stitches so far, I have to say cushion stitch is my favorite, the pink/purple ones that look all fluffy like pillows.
Jerusalem stitch (topmost blue), on the other hand, can go rot in a ditch somewhere. It's a vertical version of rice stitch (the center blue) but because it's vertical, it just looks like a miserable blob. The long bottom legs get lost and you can't see them sticking out at all. Or maybe I just fail at stitching! We may never know...
I wonder how much I can finish over this long weekend... :p
