Rethinking Embroidery #4- Blue Trees!

Now that the rooftop garden is growing nicely, its time for more landscaping.

Planting trees is beneficial for the environment and a way to add more color and texture to your landscape. So this next step calls for, you guessed it, blue trees.

I love a blue tree! And fitting blue trees snuggly between the green bullion knot trees, adds even more zip to the tree line. The blue trees are stitched with a variegated size 12 thread called Degas Blue. Using a Stem Stitch, the tree’s center is embroidered first. Then the centerline is surrounded by French Knots. It’s the variegation of the thread that makes an attractive blue tree. Thank you Degas Blue!
