Sneak peek – another week of the Creativebug embroidery challenge

This week was fun, I particularly liked the back stitched chain and getting my head around closed buttonhole. Heavy chain was a challenge though and I don’t think it will be a stitch that I’ll use at all regularly, although thanks to Rebecca, I did eventually work out how to do it. I’ve noticed though that there are some stitches that I do differently to Rebecca, notably with the chain stitches, so my zig zag chain looks a bit different from Rebecca’s, as I didn’t use tack stitches. Also I do fern stitch completely differently. Variation, though, is one of the joys of embroidery and I am really loving how this is turning out, particularly the texture, I could just sit and stroke it.
