Stitches Telling a Story: Improv #4

Every time I take a stitch I’m reminded of how hand embroidery brings artwork to life. How I enjoy these stitches that create a story on cloth!

With a few Stem Stitches water streams under the bridge into the river. Chain Stitches form a boat waiting for the owners of the house to take their trip. And a combination of Chain stitches, French Knots, and Fly Stitches create a sun rising behind the clouds to cheer them along their river journey. It is hand embroidery that brings this story to life.
