Embroidery offers an infinite variety of stitches, each with its own impact on projects. Satin stitch has a mirror-like sheen while lazy daisy stitches look just like delicate petals carried away by the wind. Each stitch adds a different kind of texture and movement that adds a third dimension to fabric. Embroidery truly is the special effects department of sewing.
I’m working on a wool wall hanging designed by Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop. Even though I’ve been doing embroidery for a long time, I had to learn a few new stitches for this project--the feather stitch and the fern stitch. These stitches make the flowers I’m sewing look real!
