As you follow along, refer to the diagram that you have downloaded which details the  Petal numbers so you know which one to stitch.

Start stitching…

Start by stitching  Petal 1 and Petal 8 with a couching stitch around the outer edge…

How to do the Couching Stitch…

Refer to the diagram below…

Come up at 1 with your main thread and leave it there.

Using a separate thread (couching thread) come up at 2 and down at 3 (directly opposite where you came out at 2)  so the couching thread goes over the main thread anchoring it down as in step 4.

Continue in this way, making small stitches across the main thread to anchor it down.

When the line is stitched, take the main thread to the back of your work and secure off.

Couching

Stitch all the way around petals 1 and 8 to complete your first part of the poinsettia embroidery sampler.

Hopefully that was a nice and easy start, day 2 is Split Stitch and Stem Stitch… hope to see you then.

Let me know how you get on as I love to see people enjoying my patterns. I am on Instagram and facebook with @stitchdoodlesdesign.
