This weekend I worked on finishing the little sheep embroidery I started a few weeks ago.
Here's a pic of it halfway done.
I have read on many stitching sites that french knots are much easier to stitch if you use a milliners needle. So I decided to give it a try with the french knots on the sheep and its the truth! I will only use a milliners needle whenever I stitch french knots.
I also tried a new technique for stitching the chain stitches for the outer circle. I followed the instructions for the easiest chain stitch on Sublime Stitching and as it states - I will never work a chain stitch the same way again! It is so easy.
This little embroidery is a gift for someone and will post an update as to how I eventually finish it.
Oh, and this is a Floss Box pattern.
