It’s been a while since I’ve had a tiny needle post, as I’ve put off cross-stitching until after Christmas. But, my gnomes require blanket-stitching around all the applique, so I figure it qualifies for TNT.
Like Dad’s sweater, I’ve been trying to put some hours into it every evening. Burton has been keeping me on track.
Cross-stitching aside, I’ve never been great at any sort of embroidery – and blanket stitch is no exception. But I think my wonky stitches give it a rather “primitive” charm.
I’ve completed the body of one gnome, and the feet, hand and antler of another. I probably won’t get this done in time for Christmas, but I hope to get it finished by the new year. Then I can pack it away with the rest of the Christmas stuff and it will be ready and easy to find next Christmas!
