Pooh ‘Doing Nothing’ at the Beach

“Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?” Winnie the Pooh

After my husband, Bill, selected this piece (a sunglasses case designed by Barbara Russell) as a Christmas gift, the guys at Rittenhouse Needlepoint helped with thread selection. Because of the wear & tear it will get, they recommended using DMC Cotton Perle with the basketweave stitch.  It had been so long since I used that stitch, I had to look it up to be sure how it differed from Continental (The Needlepoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen). There is no distortion & it is a durable stitch. It’s a nice change of pace from what I’ve been working on & practical! Good choice Bill – I love it & you were right – my sunglasses needed a nice case!
