  1. […] I had been thinking how I’d love to do some embroidery but never seem to have the time. So to clear my mind, I browsed through pictures of embroidery, of crochet, and of embroidery combined with crochet and there it was…a new stitch I hadn’t tried, called the herringbone ladder stitch.

  2. Great patterns. Your skill and images have inspired my creative energy.
    Nana and granddaughter will get busy on her next visit.
    Thank you
