Long & Short Stitch is one of my favourite stitches, but I'm finding I need to be careful doing it. It seems to aggravate my tennis elbow/carpal tunnel (so flipping annoying) and I will have to take a break from it after I've finished this piece for the jafagirl flower power show at the Emporium.

Charity Shop Finds

Crochet Spread

I couldn't make this for the price I got it, 99 cents and in mint condition.  Whoever did it chose lovely soft yarn, so it's very snuggly.

both are lovely... I love your stitching. Handmade is why I have pursued the arts & crafts.

This is really coming together nicely! I sympathize with your pain...I, too, am getting the carpel tunnel in my right wrist, which of course is my drawing hand. And my beading hand.
The price of creativity, I guess!

(Thanks for sharing all the street art you find, too, btw - love Pickels!)

thanks Megan,
yea tera, I guess I can't sit for 3 hours just doing long and short stitch. Have to do short bursts when it comes to that particular stitch.

glad you like pickles.
