New Stitch Monday With a Twist – Week 4
For the letter “D” I chose the Rosemary stitch. I have to admit that I had a different stitch picked out for this but after I took it out the 4th time I realized if I got frustrated there is a good chance that you would also. For me needlepoint is supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable. While I do like to challenge myself, I don’t want to get stressed out.
Since I already purchased the threads & ribbon, I looked for a stitched that I would be able to use all 3 threads. I did this stitch in 3 steps. First, I did all of the Continental stitches using 4 stands of Splendor S997, if your canvas is 13 count use 6 strands (shown dark purple). For the 2nd step I did all of the cross stitches using Kreinik – K2094HL (shown light blue). For the 3rd step I did the accent lines using Neon Rays N05 using a Chenille needle. I did need 2 cards of N05. I tried doing the accent lines before the cross stitch but I found I kept catching the ribbon causing it to pull.
I hope you can add this to your 21 new stitches in the 2021 Challenge.
Give it a try!
Happy Stitching – Stephanie
