|Close up of blanket stitch|
If you look closely at my blanket stitch, you will see that I do not do the return centre arm at the points, I just do a lock stitch at the point and move up the next side and do the next arm. I have found that this method looks much neater than trying to squeeze in the return arm at the point (too much thread for one tiny corner!) I'm not saying that all of the points are perfect... far from it! .... but there is much less bulk at each corner and I think that looks neater.
Today is extremely hot!!! I've been out to the shopping centre for a coffee (and to keep cool!) but now I'm back in my sewing room..... fan on full blast..... still tidying up and sorting and might even do some sewing!
