It’s been a challenge trying to come up with an idea for stitching the sky in this Silk Stitch Along garden design. You don’t have to follow my plan, you can leave the sky free of stitching. But in my case, it felt right to add embroidery to the open areas of the sky.
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 Stem Stitches horizontally across the sky to make subtle cloud shapes.
