Welcome to the ‘Festive Forest’ Stitch A Long
This Stitch A Long has been taking place for 10 weeks on the Stitchdoodles blog – Starting Wednesday 21st September 2022.
Welcome to Week 10!
Its time to complete your wonderful design with the last few stitches…
Stitching the Wording…
#834: Using 2 strands split stitch. Make your stitches tiny to create the curves and smoothness of the letters.
Stitching the Dividing Lines…
You should be well used to these by now. There are just 2 remaining to be stitched in whipped double running stitch. The smaller one combines the #3345 and #321 and the last one on the bottom is stitched in #321.
Stitching the Present…
#798: Diagonal Trellis the top section and then use #321 as the anchor thread for the cross sections stitched vertically.
#3820: satin stitch bottom section.
#321: Long stitch the outlines and cross. Chain stitch the bow.
Stitching the mice…
#415: Split stitch the body and head, back stitch the tail.
#413: Back stitch the outlines around the front paws and legs. Satin stitch the ears.
#310: French Knot eye, straight stitch nose.
ECRU: seed stitch along back.
Stitching the Decorations…
From the photo the colours are pretty self explanatory.
#3345 (1 strand): fly stitch the ferns.
– Diagonal trellis stitch and then back stitch around edge.
Split stitch striped sections. Long stitch both hangers.
Berries: Split stitch stem, satin stitch berries and then chain stitch leaves. Using #310 (1 strand) add a little cross to each berry.
Complete the other set of decorations on the opposite side and you are all done!
