Crazy Quilting Wednesday - Week 3

I'm pleased with my progress on the 3 Christmas socks. Last week I intended to do more stitching while watching all the Olympics, but it was too stressful. I did some stitching this week and I pleased that 95% of the seams have at least one line of stitching on them. I started adding some lazy daisy stitches and some french knots here and there.

I ordered some mini buttons and I can't wait to get them. I hope they will make nice flower heads to go on some lines of stems that are headless right now.

Stitching on a monochromatic palate is slick. I load up 4 needles with different threads and stitch until I'm done. I now load my needles with threads so that it's easy to sit and stitch when I have a few minutes.

When I don't have enough thread to do a full line of stitching, I use up shorter pieces of threads and make a feather stitch bouquet.

I'll not be stitching in the next 10 days because I'm going away. So no stitch update next Wednesday, but there will be one the Wednesday after that.
