Welcome to our newest blog theme, #stitchingsunday. #stitchingsunday is an addition to the existing rotation of #whimsicalwednesday and #smallspacesunday. This new theme will highlight stitches from blog posts in current stitching projects.
Today's version aligns with the original stitch diagram but with a much more subtle application. I used two plies of Soie D'Alger on 18-mesh for a very light look and feel on a background behind some very glamorous objects. I wanted the objects to pop and not clash with the background. Also, truth be told, I didn't want to invest the time in doing the background in plain needlepoint, which was a very viable (and good looking) option.
These stitch diagrams, along with all other #whimsicalwednesday and #smallspacesunday stitch diagrams, can also be found on a Pinterest board here.
If you like what you see on this blog, want to learn some very creative decorative stitches, and how to put them all together, whimsicalstitch.com sells stitch guides for Melissa Shirley Designs, Zecca Designs, and Patience Brewster. 41 guides are currently available and more are in the pipeline.
I hope you have the perfect spot for this stitch! Enjoy!
