This is the ‘Flowers for Elizabeth sweet bag project that I am currently making, from a design in Issue 51 of Inspirations magazine. This week, I am stitching the stems and tendrils.
There are several little curly tendrils, and each one is stitched in Chain Stitch with two strands of Anchor stranded cotton.
They look OK just in varying shades of green……
But they look an awful lot better when the chain stitches have been whipped with Petite Treasure Braid in gold (shade 002).
Next, I’ll be stitching the strawberries. I love stitching strawberries!
