WIP: Summer Nights Stitch-Along, Week 2

Here is my second post about Little Dorrit & Co’s Summer Nights Stitch-Along. This week, I finished the embroidery. I decided to use a green-blue thread for the wings instead of black, I thought the black thread was too stark beside the other colours.

In this instalment, I learned how to do split stitches, satin stitch (I need to work on getting this neater!), lazy daisy stitch, and french knots. That’s a lot of learning! 🙂 It was a lot of fun to do.

???????????????????????????????

In the next instalment, we’ll be shown how to display the embroidery in a hoop. However, I think I will instead make it into a mini-quilt, as this will suit my son’s bedroom wall better.
