The roses are still glorious and the deadheading chore has begun. Actually I don't mind doing it as it gets me outside in the mornings or evenings - the best time of the day around here.
I've spent a little time in my stitching chair, time mostly spent unstitching my progress on Hello Spring.
Have you tried the pin stitch start that Vonna demonstrated in her latest Flosstube video? If not, you really must - it's a total game changer! Here's the link to her demo: Vonna's Pin Stitch Demo. She starts at about the 8 minute mark in the video.
I had heard her talk about using the pin stitch to start a new thread, and I had even watched a few demos, but went along on my merry way until the other day. Finally it occurred to me to give it a try and I've been hooked ever since. Now it won't work in every situation - like stitching over one thread - but for that Victoria Sampler Christmas Tree Farm and all those little snowflake xs falling in the sky it'll be amazing!
