Zigzag

Dorothy is zigzagging right along, as you can see. The flamestitched band is time-consuming (each straight stitch is one thread wide and four threads long), but it's a nice little break from the eyelets. So much fun, and a great way to pass the day out of the heat.


Heeeeeere's Elvis! (On the outside, looking in, while I cleaned the rabbits' tile floor. Note the chewed woodwork, by those who who have been inside, looking out.)

Happy rest of the week!

Dorothy is looking so pretty! I love the colours and the zigzag effect is wonderful.

I didn't manage to comment on your previous post, but I do hope that your job situation works out OK. My work is a bit precarious at the minute too and it's a scary, unsettling time.

Where the bun is not is always a more interesting spot, unless treats are involved. Hmmm..the zigzags of Dorothy parallel the stock market or the flames of Arizona.

Glenna, your work on Dorothy is beautiful. That is one colorful piece isn't it? It's just beautiful. And Elvis, what a handsome bunny!! Hugs and have a great week.

Beautiful! (The zigzag on Dorothy) (not the chewed woodwork) (although that, too, has its charm)

Your Dorothy is beautiful... I can't wait to start my own Dorothy.
Elvis is adorable. My windowsills look like your door frame... what we put up with when it comes to our four footed kids.
