Making Slow Progress

I have still been stitching away on the felt applique hand stitch project.

Here is where I was last week.

Now I have appliqued down all the felt pieces and all I have left is to couch down the dark maroon yarn. I am going to use a thin thread in the same color to do this as I don’t think I need to add much more “detail” in the thicker, brighter color threads. I don’t want it to feel too chaotic.

Here’s a close up. I used a variety of stitches to applique down the smaller felt centers of flowers. Once I finish the couching, I will need to decide how I am going to finish this. The felt background is pretty soft so I think I need to stretch it around a board or canvas. I do think a nice border might be nice but I’m not sure how I would stitch that on without it ending up really irregular and wavy.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend.

  1. All that stitching looks so satisfying – makes me itch to pick up a needle! It will look good stretched around a canvas – maybe it doesn’t need a border?
