Anyway, it's a great time to get an embroidery love break. I finished my third sampler, from the Lesson 4 of the Craftsy Hand Embroidery class. I absolutely love it...
|Knotted stitches: 1. French knot; 2. Pistol stitch; 3. Bouillon stitch; 4. Coral stitch; 5. Double knot|
Take a bouillon stitch for example, it is so tricky, but so intricate. Luckily Jessica, the class instructor, gave me a few tips how to handle it. You see the results yourself. The light blue element is stitched with 3-ply thread and was easier to handle, the red and dark grey - with 6-ply thread and were much trickier with a normal embroidery needly. I need to get a millinery needly for this stitch, Jessica told me. It is my favorite knotted stitch now.
