More Polka Dot Girls
Another Polka Dot Girls block done!
I've received several e-mails asking how many strands of floss I use or if I use perle cotton. I have a tendency to twist my needle when I stitch so I use two strands of floss because I can control them better than I can one strand of perle cotton.
I don't like to make knots on the back of my work so I'd like to share how I start stitching without a knot.
I will cut my floss twice the length that I think I will need - bring the ends together and thread my needle. I then bring my needle up from the back of my work but before I pull it tight I go back down, making my first stitch and slipping my needle through the loop I created when I brought the ends of my floss together. I then pull that first stitch taut and continue stitching. If you don't currently use this method I hope you will give it a try. :-)
Thanks for stopping by to visit and please come again!
