Take a Stitch Tuesday


Here is my wheatear stitch. I really liked this stitch and for a change didnt rush it. I had got some docotrs flannel and this rather lovely yellow felt so put the two together and with some silk waterlily threads I stitched my summer field. I spent 3 evenings on this.
Thanks Sharon for this ongoing treat, I am learning more and more about embroidery stitches and am getting a bit more adventurous with how to use them. Not to say I wont go back to being quick next week!

Penny I love all your latest pieces! The embroidery is like something I used to do. I still have all my handpainted threads, too.
I never made any boxes though, and I love the pink one! It's so feminine.
You have so many talents, it's nice to see.
