The Lazy Daisy Stitch provides endless possibilities in embroidery. This versatile looping stitch has so far given us flower petals and ferns for the Silk Stitch Along. Now we’ll use it to create the fine leaves of plants growing in the garden.
Here are the next stitching steps for the Silk Stitch Along:
- Use a size 12 pearl cotton thread and size 5 or 7 embroidery needle.
- Stitch rows of Lazy Daisy Stitches across the garden.
- Stack the stitches to make clumps of plants.
- Stitch them around the Sheaf Stitched flowers and on top of the Blanket Stitched grass.
