A bizarre little rhyme that I don't know when or where I learnt. However every spring it pops into my head!
It's embroidered on linen and all I've used is backstitch and satin stitch. The faint purple outine is an air soluble fabric pen and I love using it! It's all be vanished tomorrow and it's so handy for sketching out my ideas.
I have many embroidery books and lots of plans for detailed intricate pieces, but some how, I always come back to chain, satin and back stitch. I adore their elegant simplicity.
I'm busy with a muslin of some evening wear right now (sleeves are awkward) which I hope to show you on Monday. Have a great weekend!
