Stem stitching...

.... to get back in the groove!!! :)



The letter M.

Morning glories...
I wanted to make them look like the actual morning glories,but at the same time did not want to fill them up.I tried Buttonhole outlining first,but it wasn't satisfactory.So,the next choice was Stem stitch.Fly stitch has been used for vein of the leaves and a lot of straight stitches in the center.


and even a mosquito ;)
He does look a bit dazed with all the attention,doesn't he? My daughter drew this picture when I asked her for something with the letter M. I stitched him using stem stitch,back stitch,a few detached chains,straight stitches and french knots for the eyes

So,that's how I am back in the business!!
Hello my dear readers...this is Deepa of This and that...my random thoughts...waving to you all.Wouldn't you stop by and say a hi? :)

The past days were hectic - There were a few deaths ,unexpected and expected,in the family.That coupled with classes,routine visits to the doctor, lots of medicines and school holidays for daughter made me a busy bee:) I did try to make occasional visits to my fellow blogger's pages to keep myself updated on what's happening around.

Hopefully,my next post wouldn't take another two months!! There are a lot of stitchy stuff I want to share with you :)
Love,luck and sunshine,
Deepa
