When I was a child, I had a favorite book that I'd turn to whenever I got bored and/or didn't know what to do or couldn't play with my best friend, etc. Tho' I've searched the web from time to time over the years, hoping that I might magically hit upon just the right combination of words that would magically turn up the book/title - you know, it's one of those I'll know it when I see it - I just don't remember the book's title. It totally escapes me.
I do remember tho' that the book had all sorts of neat things to do for those situations described above.
And I remember that it had a sort of teal-blue cover;
And that I learned how to make paste using flour and water;
And that I learned how to make embroidery stitches like the blanket stitch.
For my birthday, my friend Pat gave me a set of different size and type needles for creative texturing. I decided to make a needle keeper for them. I want to outline the appliqué pieces with the blanket stitch.
I am currently blanket - stitch challenged! I discovered that last Fall when I was making the quilting association's challenge. Nothing's changed.
Gee, sure wish I could recall and find that book!
