Here is my lastest work in progress. Its not finished yet but I think its coming along nicely. I saw this on a free pattern website and decided I jsut HAD to finally stitch something for myself.
I traced it out with pencil on a white on white cotton. In retrospect I prolly should have picked a different fabric, it was a real bear to get the pattern traced and depending on the light the pattern on the fabric can make it really difficult to see the traced pattern.
This is going to be a kind of sampler piece with every feather group being a different type of stitch. Im trying to expand my known by heart stitches.
So far Ive done satin, chain, split, back stitch, what I call long and short, Im sure its got a proper name but I dont know it, and fishbone which I just learned. Ive got an idea for which stitch I want to use for the hearts but since I dont want to repeat stitches I have no clue what Im going to do for the rest of the feathers.
Dose anyone know of a good website for stitches?
