Swan doily


Hi !
It was a busy week for me, managed to finish a couple of commissions. I wish I have 30 hours or more per day.
Cutwork is one of my favorite techniques. I start a cutwork project when I’m stressed and I don’t know why I do that…may be I’m crazy J.

                                   
It’s a square doily and I’d stitched this doily with stranded cotton threads.
Which is your favorite embroidery technique /stitch and how often do you use that?

Have a happy weekend wherever you are!
Happy stitching!
Anita.

The swan doily is beautiful and if you love doing cutwork it is the perfect thing to do while you are stressed. I think the simple running stitch is my favorite most used stitch. From basting to embroidery it is most often included and probably the first stitch I learned.

You do Cutwork when stressed????

I think it would make me stressed to try, although I would like to learn.

Your work is perfectly beautiful.
