Touch--Don't Touch

Kathy's been working an embroidered quilt top, showing progress photos on The Unbroken Thread.   Today's posting is especially interesting as she raises the question about stitching things that are meant to be touched versus stitching things meant to be put away, kept out of the reach of little (and big) hands.  We all know models in shops and exhibit items are irresistible--hands seem drawn to them.  Are we making a mistake not stitching for touch?

No matter how you feel about folks' touching your needlepoint, check out the textural acorn tops Kathy created by the artful scattering of French knots.  That's something I want to remember to use!
