Doing the bottom of the knit knot tree embroidery panel, and practicing drawing with my non dominant hand (frees you from "thinking" too much about what you're drawing).

You are a master of satin stitch, Corrine! What kind of thread are you using? Cotton? Wool? A blend?

Boy did some of those 'exercises' take me back! Good idea, tho....

Say-came across this and I thought of you (and Jude.) Her work seems very intuitive-like both of yours. :-)

Anyway, I liked her stuff and would love to know what all those stitches are. Pretty dang cool.
