Slow Stitching Sunday ~ More Daisies

Thank you all for the suggestions regarding needles and thread for this project. I ended up using pearl cotton in size 8 and a chenille needle (can’t remember the size).

I am loving these! And I am  really and truly enjoying the handwork here.

I never thought I would say that about applique!

I’m working on getting my stitches more even, but I am certainly not stressing out about it.

It is going so much faster than I expected. I might actually get these done this month! So far, I have 10 of 20 complete!

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts

    Your little black stitches are so even and neat.

  8. Oh these look really great! I found making larger stitches after learning to make small hand quilting stitches difficult until I stop fretting about a little uneveness. I think your stitches look quite perfect , just keep up the great work.

    I’m so glad I came across your blog and had the chance to see your neat stitches. I’m thinking of using this type of applique this winter and it helped to see how it’s used. It’s very pretty!
