Day 32 – A Year of Stitches 2017

February 1, 2017

A new month starts today.  February…..

Today I started to add stems to my tulips.  I decided to use an oldie but goody stitch, the backstitch!  Everyone uses this one for outlining or adding details when they do cross stitch.  I could have used the stem stitch, but the backstitch works just as well.  I also added detached chain stitches for the long leaves for the tulips.  I used a bright green as well, hopefully to wake me up during this dreary day in NoVA.
