dealing with frustration
Of course I added some french knots for moss. French knots are my favorite stitch, but you know that!
Because this design is a shape rather than my usual circle designs, there are additional construction challenges. When I make a round pincushion, I don't have to worry about the top and bottom of the pincushion lining up! With a shape like this gravestone, I have to be really careful assembling it, to make sure the top point and bottom corners all line up which takes a bit longer.I'll be taking these gravestones with me to the quilt show in a couple of weeks but then I'll be making some more for my webshop.
