I've mentioned before that I've been in the stitching doldrums lately, but I did manage to get in a few stitches on my Garnet Purse. I had this grand idea that I would finish it in time to take it on vacation over the Fourth of July holiday, but you can see that that idea got nowhere.
I worked on this last Sunday, and decided to take it with me in the car when it was my carpooler's turn to drive. These leaves are made using three strands of floss, unusual in that most of the embroidery in worked in perlé cotton. These leaves are made with buttonhole stitch, which I didn't think I would like at first, but realized that they came out looking quite nice.
There have been terrible wildfires in Colorado lately, but luckily the weather has cooled into the 90's so that's helping. So you won't see too many posts until I return in just over a week. Have a great week!
