#1yearofstitches [Week 2]



9th January: A combination of chain stitch in peach and blanket stitch in blue (bottom right)
10th January: Satin stitch in yellow
11th January: Stem stitch in green, snuggled up against the chain and blanket stitch combination.
12th January: Danish knots in two shades of purple. This is a totally new stitch for me, so I used this tutorial. It makes little triangular knots, that would be perfect for animals noses in the right embroidery! I had a bit of play with scale with this stitch and I will definitely be using it again! (top left)
13th January: Hungarian Braid Stitch (left hand side). This turned out heavier than I expected and needs some softening...
14th January:...so I added some pale blue chain stitch along one side.
15th January: And them some pink blanket stitch whipped with pale pink.
