Stitching the Green Pillars…
These pillars are quite time consuming to stitch – I chose to complete them in Brick stitch as this is a filler stitch I particularly enjoy stitching.
If you are not a fan of this stitch then by all means choose a filler that you are more comfortable with as it will work just as well. Some suggestions could be Satin Stitch, Split stitch, Chain Stitch.
Try something you like and see how it goes – you can always change your mind and unpick – I have done this many times on many patterns!
Stitch Lazy Daisies…
After all that stitching for the Pillars, you can have a nice bit of fun stitching the lazy daisies to fill each of the centre gaps and giving each a French Knot for the centre.
Your Sampler is now Complete – Yay
