Welcome All to our Mystery Stitch-Along…Rhonda always throws a fabulous party!! I hear you are all buying kits like crazy!!!! WE love that you are so supportive of our Mystery… This is block 2 in the series…there will be 12 total and then Rhonda will have a finishing layout for you as well…
I chose to stitch the Christmas Carol…”The Holly & the Ivy”…and I had so much fun…designing and stitching this block…click the link below and after the ad, it will start in five seconds…
As you can see…I stitched this comfortably while Jace is playing with all his toys…
For my block I used…the following…I have linked the products to our website for easy ordering if you need these items.
#8 wt. O775 and 3Strand floss in O775– using only one strand…I used this on the letters…so they #12 wt would not make the letters “chubbier”. The one strand of 3SF covers the edge but doesn’t take over..
We do not have an endless supply of threads…we have picked out some subs that will work just as well…so if you do not get the exact thread listed know we picked a sub. I
I will post a STEM STITCH video in our Facebook group…
