I am looking forward to the days when the weather is warm enough for the wild roses to bloom.
The Wild Rose embroidery is a great beginners project in the needle painting technique. It introduces you to several of the surface embroidery stitches that are commonly used in needle painting also known as thread painting.
One of the most important stitch that is used…..which is hidden in the embroidery…..is a split stitch line. The split stitch line is stitched along the design lines of the the petals and leaves and then satin stitch or long and short stitch is worked over the top of the split stitch line (covering it) giving the edges of the petals and leaves a lovely smooth and rounded appearance.
Please visit the Needle Painting Kits page of my website for other designs.
