Wipocalypse April check in

So the topic for Wipocalypse this month is which stitches to you dread and what do you like?

About the only stitch I dread is bullion knots I just can’t get the tension right and they look like sad worms….  As for stitches I like, I enjoy Queen stitches.  I know other people hate them but I find them easy. I haven’t really understood why people find them so hard, for the longest time I thought I must be doing them wrong.  Several  years ago though I had a conversation with a designer who enjoys Queen stitches too and she said I was doing them correctly.  So I don’t understand the fuss.

For a background stitch on Needlepoint canvases, I usually fall back on Queen Anne’s Lace, often referred to as a T stitch. It’s a simple filler stitch that works up quickly.

If you want pictures of what I did this month, check out the blog entry before this one.  I’ve done 2 rotation slots in a short period of time and I’m progressing on The Raven too.   Pictures of that to come next Wednesday. Hopefully it will be finished by then or at least close to being done.
