My Amish mini was calling for feathers but is getting a fly stitch instead. Was inspired by my friend Susan, a blue-ribboned embroiderer. She said this was easier and more fun to do. I'm using Aurifil #12 wt. similar to Perle cotton.
Which reminds me...my mom, Pearl, turns 94 today! I owe her big time for teaching me how to sew ...plus a whole lot more!!!
