Think of the Hand of Fortune project from my new book, Joyful Stitching, as a sampler of embroidery stitches. Or maybe as a colorful playground for stitchery. It’s like that open palm shape is inviting you to play and experiment with new stitches.
Here are some fun ideas for your playground stitchery. Make concentrated hits of color with Ermine Stitches. Embroider contained shapes with the Chain Stitch. And construct long spiky lines with Fern Stitches. So jump into that playground and stitch your little heart out. The possibilities for hand embroidery are endless!
And the first person to enter thestitch playground is our lucky winner of a pre-printed palm shape for embroidery: Sandy May.
Congratulations! I’ll contact you soon.
