Take a daily stitching stroll through the woods. Stitch a tree, a few flowers, a bird. Pick your own threads from your stash. Change up colors. Toss in some beads or knots. Tweak the trees and make them your own. Enjoy the journey and find satisfaction in this woodland stroll, one stitch at a time.
Sit every day and stitch one flower – by the end of a year you’ll have a beautiful tapestry of different flowers. Use any thread – leftovers from kits, last-thread-of-the-skein – anything goes! Carolyn says: “Over the course of 2017, I embroidered a piece that consisted of four 18” x 18” “canvases”, stitching a flower or two every day using a tangled up bunch of stray embroidery threads I had; cotton floss, perle cottons, silks, overdyed, off-brand flosses. (You get the idea!). So sit back, grab your box of threads and stitch your garden.” Finished piece measures 223w x 225h, or 16" x 16" on 14ct. fabric.
