My sample for week 17 - the wheatear
I call it wheatear leaves. The backround is a hand-dyed piece of fabric.
If you have a closer look at it you can see that my first stitches (the blue and some of the white stitches) are not made in the proper way. I fixed the chain through the two straight stitches AND at the same time through the chain stitch above.
But then --- Shirley in Australia sent me a scan of the stitch from her Anchor Embroidery book and I went on making proper stitches. I did not undo the "wrong" stitches because I liked them.
Thank you so much Shirley
