Noun (Knitting & Sewing) a link made by drawing a thread through material by means of a needle
Verb (Knitting & Sewing) (tr) to sew, fasten, etc, with stitches
Example: When I am forced to use needle and thread, yes it's true.
When a hot glue gun or stapler, well it just won't due!
Oh, don't think I haven't tried it "all" once or twice.
See, I'm addicted to "stitch"
no matter the price.
I've cooked aluminum can's on the BBQ grill.
Then stitched them to a wall hanging, just for the thrill.
(You really must try it, it is quite a hoot)
Oh, I've stitched clothesline into many a things.
Some even look like, they are sitting on springs.
(Gotta love my leaning basket, of Pisa?)
I've glued tissue paper into muslin, painted and stitched.
Heck, I've even stitched photos...now ain't that just rich!
Stitched a couch, in my house...
Stitched up some of those...
...just to warm up, the "ole" toes.
I've gone bonkers with strange stuff...
Have you ever saved thread?
It makes a nice wool feel fabric.
Definitely not for your bed.
Cloth made from "Dog Ears".
No, not the ones from your dog...
...those little pieces from squaring, half square triangles, oh my...
And what about "shard" cloth?
All those "shards" you must save.
When trimming your blocks, you know it's all the rave.
It's a sickness I tell you!
And I just can't "seam" to stop.
But coffee bags?
Oh heck, just why not!
This 2'x4' giant, the most crazy of all.
It hangs in my kitchen, right up on the wall!
I tell you, there is "almost" no limit, what you can stitch!
But I love me, my quilting...
Fusible applique is my fix!
If you'd like to see more of my crazy ideas and plans
you'll find me in the MooseStash, with the "whole" dog gone clan!
The boys and I would like to thank Tammy for inviting us in,
to share our "stitch" story, with all of her friends.
We have a little more fun with stitches today.
A bit of a fun, that allows you to play.
Just stop in for a visit
we will see you all there.
Till' next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
