Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!
Just in time for Easter, I present to you this lovely Egg Sampler:
(Easter Egg Sampler by Wild Olive.)
This was the first time I'd ever done an embroidery sampler. Yes, I've done some of these stitches, but not this many! Surface Blanket Stitch? What's that? Oh yeah, it's a piece of cake! Herringbone? Fern Stitch? BAM! Not a problem. I've always been intimidated by the thought of these 'complicated' stitches, but it turns out they're not so bad. I had a couple of stitch books with illustrated guides to help me, and I was able to knock out this sweet little egg in a couple evenings. This sampler challenged me to try new things and I am SO glad that I did. Stitching this was a blast! Of course, using variegated floss helped make it easy, too. So many colors with so little hassle. ♥
Well, that's all for now, folks! I still have to show you the swap piece I mentioned a while ago, so stay tuned, it's coming soon. Until then...
