It’s been days! Absolutely days since I posted. In the midst of all the drama that is our new normal we changed hosting companies for the website. We’re back up and running with that.
Let’s cycle back in time to several weeks ago when we had the 4th lesson of the Lady with the Lime Green Background. This is our current mystery class, designed by Colors of Praise.
This lesson was all about pattern. Her dress is a riot of color and pattern. We set the stage by working the left side in a laid filling using Treenway Tranquility and filling in the patches with luscious long stitches.
The right side is another laid filling stitch. The star of the show however, is the stripe of beads between the two patterns.
There’s even pattern in the headband! A beaded pattern. You know I love that.
There’s only one more lesson of this mystery and it will be in two weeks, March 29th. I have big plans for this lesson. I’ve got ideas! Whatever that means, prepare for fun.

Just a quick question on filling the patches with long stitches – is the “block” pattern stitched at random – there doesn’t seem like there could be a way to keep a specific pattern going. If it is at random, how do you determine the “randomness”? Just curious…..
Random is random. I know it’s hard for most people. It brings me joy. I started each section with a largish Scotch Stitch not in the center of the patch and then built shapes around it.
