Stitches from top to bottom: blanket, chain, fern, chain.
I love embroidery because it's something I can do to keep busy when I'm sitting around or watching TV. I get bored if my hands aren't busy with something! I recently learned that in Yiddish, there's a word for someone like me, who always has a lot of nervous energy and can't sit still without doing something: shpilkes. Shelly Shpilkes. It works!
