Another bit of work completed on my latest block...
Blanket stitch (dark green); fly stitch (blue); lazy daisies (light green); cast on stitch or you could use bullions (pink); and either beads or French knots.
I think I showed you the base part of the vine that is now complete. I used one of Sharon Boggon's wonderful stencils to draw out the vine and then I completed it with some heart-shaped beads. The leaves were done using fly stitch and lazy daisies.
If you'd like to check out Sharon's stencils, go HERE. I have no affiliation, but I highly recommend them!
Today's dose of mumblings...
