If my stitching is going to improve, I need to start doing samplers. I’m trying to run and I can barely walk where stitching is concerned.
It’s time to put in the effort to become fluent.
I am learning to embroider here and there (great fabric from JacksonFabricArts). This is a cretan stitch, sometimes called leaf stitch. The stitches may also be closer together for a more realistic, less skeletal leaf.
