Chris Capista made these intricate and beautiful bead embroidery hearts for the February Heart Challenge.
TREES! Beautiful trees.
Our Pinterest Board for inspiration is HERE
The suggested stitch to use is the Encroaching Satin Stitch which you can see HERE
You can view one of Mary Corbet’s video tutorials HERE or search youtube for other tutorials. Feel free to use any stitches you prefer. The suggested satin stitch is a good stitch to cover a large area.
There are many ways to use the idea of a tree in your embroidery. It could be about the leaves, the trunk, the roots, the shape of the tree. It can be a bird on a branch of a tree. There is the family tree too! We hope you will join us in celebrating the tree.
There was not enough interest in the idea of a swap, so we will count down to May’s final challenge with this challenge and two more.
