basket-weaving

i am still reeling from this weekend's good fortune! i feel like eliza doolittle in "i could have danced all night

thank you so much for all your sweet words of encouragement, i could not have survived without my sweet stitchy friends! 
--------------------------------------------------------

so i stitched a basket this weekend (hence the dorky pun-filled post title)

Princess & Me ballooning santa


the first part of the basket stitch called for stranded floss and a padded satin stitch for the balustrade

then i went back and added the second color floss on every other row

 and finally i went back and added krenik crosses for a little shine

i am ready to stitch the contents of the basket, and then santa will be able to take flight!
