Art with My Needle ~ Week 22

I am running late today so I will give you a sample of using only one stitch.

Fly stitch is the one I have chosen

It looks like a letter Y

Altering the shape other effects can easily be achieved.

Same stitch worked closely on the left and the group on the right giving movement.

Introducing different colour and some exaggerated stitches can change the work completly.

For anyone beginning embroidery a good point of online reference for stitches is this needlework dictionary. Not alone will it show you how a stitch is worked but plenty of variations for each one.

One to be bookmarked, I think!
