Embroidery here, embroidery there. Embroidery is everywhere. Don't believe me? I bet you can locate three things that have embroidery on them in your home without even hunting. Better yet, I bet you're wearing something right now that's been embroidered. Baseball cap? Sneakers? Shirt with a logo? Or perhaps on the shoulder of your T-shirt or back pocket of your jeans? Surprise! You're embroidered. By hand or machine, on clothing or home furnishings, embroidery is everywhere.

These dishcloths may have been conceived in the 1940s, bus this mitered technique is contemporary. When choosing your yarn, keep in mind that the multi-colored stripes will stand out more clearly if the solid color background does not appear within the multi-color yarn. We love the way the ridges help rub dried food off the dishes.

TATTING is a form of lacemaking, which is essentially a series of lark's head knots tied in a row or (sennet). A tattigg shuttle is not required for this project because each length of cord is fairly short to cover each ring. A magnetic clasp provides a nice "hidden" closure for this funky 6 os style bracelet.

Fix the fabric into the hoop. Starting in the middle of the fabric, stitch the dark-green heart, working each cross-stitch over two strands of fabric. following the chart. Next.
