Our TAST stitch for the week was sheaf stitch which I usually call wheat sheaf, a great accent and fill in stitch. I worked the top half of my design in the regular manner and played with an alternate for the bottom half.
I like both versions. Instead of just doing satin stitch for 'Pepsi' I utilized the holes in the aida cloth to space the lines out giving it a completely different look.
Pepsi-Cola was invented by Caleb Bradham on August 28, 1898 as a digestive aid. It had pepsin in it. Years later when he sold the company the recipe was changed to just be a soda fountain drink. Wish they still made the original recipe, there are times I could really use it!
Nana (my maternal grandmother) loved Pepsi and always kept the glass bottles of it in the crisper drawer in her fridge. Always a treat for me after I had mowed her lawn or shared with her in the evening along with a peanut butter sandwich.
Just for fun, here's the history of the logos.
