A new take a stitch Tuesday

This week, I played with stitching on a grid. I used left over perle cotton on a larger count linen to experiment with different sizes and color combinations for the Butterfly Chain Stitch. In the center is a wrapped stitch from a previous week. The lack of creativity may be in part because this week's piece was stitched at a karate tournament.
I read more of Founding Mothers at the tournament and have decided that I like Mercy Warren who thought that it was possible to raise children, pursue the "womanly arts" and to write profound chapters (she had a career as a political pamphlet writer). Her needlework table top is on display in Pilgrim Hall.
