Sampler of the Month Subscribers, this month, we're working on Weaving Stitches. Having grown up with a mom who made weavings for a living, I am familiar with looms (although I don't really know how to use them with any proficiency).

For how to's, diagrams, and inspiration, check out the Pinterest Board I created for Weaving Stitches. Here's an overview of the board:

Meanwhile, in Colorburst news, in this dark month of the year, I'm sending out rainbows! I love the way @funyoungs stitched this version up with (french knot) clouds in the sky, and a beautiful satin stitch rainbow. Check out that variegated cross stitched border! Snazzy!
