Stitching Progress

Here is a photo of the first few motifs I have embroidered so far on the pincushion project for the class I am taking:
My stitching, despite the tingling in my fingers is coming along though it is going slowly the stitches all come back to me as the needle flows in and out of the fabric.
I have all the green stems completed and one bird after the photo I finished the flowers above the bird and today I hope to have the piece completely embroidered.  I have to toot my horn and tell you the first French knot I did came out just right I actually amazed myself though I had to check a tutorial to see the lazy daisy being made because I could not get the hang of it, mind you it was just one day after I made several in class to practice. And here I thought the french knot was going to be the stitch I needed to watch again and again.

I don't know if any of you are familiar with Mary Corbet's Needle and Thread blog site which I absolutely love, she has wonderful tutorials on youtube,  I visit her tutorials when I need to refresh my memory or to learn an new stitch.

Anyway that's my progress so far, it doesn't look like I will get everything embroidered by next Tuesday but I'm confident I will.
There are a few other projects I plan to make from the Patchwork Loves Embroidery book so I better get cracking.


  1. Hi Deb,
    So far so good. Mary Corbet's blog and you tubes are one of my favorites. I have not checked her out lately. Thanks for the reminder.
    Happy Stitching!
