Here are the next stitching steps for the Silk Stitch Along:

  • Use a variegated color of size 12 pearl cotton thread and size 5 or 7 embroidery needle.
  • Stitch Lazy Daisy Stitches around the ends of the tree branches to make leaves.
  • Use that same thread and fill in the opening is each Lazy Daisy Stitch with a Straight Stitch.
