More progress....

As I mentioned last time, I wasn't happy with my first tree effort on the hussif, so it's subsequently been replaced.  Not that this one is a whole lot better, but in real life it shows up better than in the photo. 


The tree is worked with straight stitches and the trunk is chain.  The seam to the left is a wrapped back stitch and there are lazy daisy stitches surrounding the rice pearl beads. 

Today's quote is from an anonymous source... "Don't look where you fall, but where you slipped"

Love the lazy daisy with the rice beads - the hussif is really coming along. I always enjoy seeing the combinations of stitches you come up with - so inspirational!
