Daily stitching and a challenge page

 I've been stitching a bit every day, trying not to disturb my arm, but it is still hurting when I do certain things, like reaching for the car door in the passenger seat or reaching for anything on that side. I've been putting Arnica gel on it twice a day and ice in the evening. 

I did  three more interlocking circles and the rest just what I felt like at the moment.

 My theme for February was Knots and Dots. I did a variety of French knots and also took advantage of the dots on some of the fabrics.

I liked this little garden of Pistol Stitches. I intended to put a strip of lace on each page, but I didn't want to hide this section so I cut the lace short. 

Here you can see my stitching on the dots.

My two pages side by side. I also took advantage of the fringed edges on the fabric.

I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.

I really like your February pages, how you’ve played off the fabric patterns with your embroidery to give physical texture where there was only visual. All the little bits make them so interesting and fun to explore. How long does your project go? Will you bind all the pages together at the end? So fun!
