Outside. A slow greening despite the chilling damp.
Inside. Still burnin' in May. We thought we would have wood left over for Fall but at this point, it doesn't look good. A new season here, it seems. Stretching out the in between.
Changes to this one. Continued from here. I have added two fields of stitch (subject for another day). This is variation on what I call the Stacked Running Stitch. I started talking about this stitch way back when in Magic Diaries. Since then I have done a lot of work with it. Some here on the blog, some, a lot actually, behind the scenes.
Running stitch is a big subject for me, since I stick with basic stitch styles over all. And I need to spend some time with that. I am not in the mood for video today, too dark and gloomy. But I have some old ones regarding this stacking concept for now. I will talk about how I adapted this stitch for the spheres of stitch in my next post. And try to dig up some additional studies done with that concept.

And then again, comparing it to other stitched bars

There is a page at Feel Free (and in the sidebar index here) for Running Stitch, still marked under construction. Before I start building it, I will be moving the Feel Free site in order to make it more stable as a permanent place. In a couple of weeks I will post a new link. I have lots of work to do but I think it will make more sense. I need to pay considerably more to host this site so we'll see how it goes...I might be doing some fundraising in the future. Donations continue to dribble in, and so far I'm good. :-) Thank you for that. Cheering me on.
