I have stitched a little bit more on my pomegranate piece. I had time when we went on a quick road trip this past weekend. I’m still not sure what direction I am taking with this so it’s kind of just “free form” stitching at the moment.
This is the entire piece. I mainly added more stem stitch around the various pomegranate shapes.
I like how the stem stitch really defines the shapes. It is my go-to stitch for curving lines.
Here’s a little closer view.
I did add a few more seed stitches but not many.
Now I need to decide if I am going to add more to the background. I was thinking about adding branches and leaves. What do you think?
For those of you in the northwest United States, Gail Harker from La Conner, Washington is coming to Kalispell, Montana at the end of June to give a Level 1 Experimental Hand Stitch course.
Northwest Montana is a beautiful place to visit and you could combine the class with a vacation. Road trip anyone?
