"Daisy, Daisy...


...give me your answer do..."*


To the question; "When are you going to be finished?"  maybe?
I am still enjoying the stitching, even if it is taking and age. I am trying to keep the stitches uniform but I have deliberately made them smaller as I changed colour.
It is hard to keep small stitches small, don't you find? Or is that just me?


Here is what it looked like before I began stitching.
Linking up with Off The Wall Friday.

  1. It has natural beauty just like a daisy. I think we each have a natural 'default' size we hand stitch at and when we stitch larger or smaller we start to creep back up or down to our default size. Esp when we get tired. That's my theory anyway.

  3. Love the dense seed stitching! I can imagine it is quite time consuming, but also very relaxing. Looking forward to follow the progress!

  8. ohhh I'm so glad you gave some up close of this piece. I'm wondering. . . . when you do all that stitching on the daisy's what stabilizer are you using? I've used some that I'm still getting buckles with !the stitching is really inspirational!

  10. Love your stitching and yes, I find it hard to keep the stitches small:) It seems I must get into a hurry to get done or something and before I know it they have increased in time.
    They add so much texture though!!

  13. I love the shades in your fabrics and the stitching. I have tried the seed type stitching and mine looks a mess, yours looks natural and blends in beautifully with the design.

    But your freeform patch worked daisies, doubly make the stitches zing.

  16. That is gorgeous Deborah! I love all the seed stitching. Are all of those stitches part of the quilting or are they a surface design? Either way it is gorgeous.

if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
