According to Stitch-opedia, the "fly stitch is an isolated stitch that can be arranged in a number of ways to give different overall patterns."
I decided to keep a book that includes several different components:
- the tactile stitch with its name;
- a short journal hand-written journal entry; and
- a list of a few things for which I'm grateful.
Rather than going out and purchasing supplies, I use what I had on hand: a lined composition book, scrapbooking paper, linen fabric, and cotton embroidery floss.
I tried a few different variations of the fly stitch in different shades of blue and green. Blue was Dad's favorite color...and both blue and green remind me of the outdoors which he loved.
