Colour and Stitch Guide
Stitching the Vines and Leaves…
Stitch the Vine first in Stem Stitch – in order to get the nice curve, keep your stitches nice and small as you go along so there are no stitches making sharp lines.
For the Fly Stitch leaves – start at the tip of the leaf and work down to the base. You can see the picture guide for Fly Stitch on week 9 here.
Stitching the Flowers…
Each of the flower petals is stitched with Brick Stitch – if you need a reminder of how to do this stitch you can go back to week 8 and follow the picture tutorial again.
To finish the block off – stitch a lovely row of french knots on the lower edge. How great does your sampler look now…
See you next week for Block 11 – this will be Thursday 14th May – see you then.
