First a row of chain stitch along an edge of one tulip. Then a row of detached buttonhole stitches in the chain row.
And the repeat.
It was interesting to do. Not something I'm in love with.
Now the striped tulip in front of the bird was fun. Those are rows of stem stitch.
I've never stitched underground before. This is all fun. I'm playing with color, stitch combinations.
It is a nice picture and it turns really interesting! I think I will try to stitch with you...ReplyDelete
Great! I hope you'll share your progress.ReplyDelete
I really like your stitching and color choices. You are using a couple of stitches that I am not familiar with. I have to take out my stitch book. I don't use it that much.ReplyDelete
Hi Janet, What stitch have you used for the arches. It kind of looks like a long arm cross stitch.ReplyDelete
It is the herring bone stitch. I worked the stitches VERY CLOSE together.Delete
It does look like fun. So may opportunities for experimentation!ReplyDelete
