Stitch of the Month Update - Fly & Herringbone Stitches

We have been doing a stitch of the month for a few months now, and members are really enjoying expanding their repertoire, and trying new things with their hand embroidery. Here are a few photos of members work using Fly and Herringbone Stitches:

I used herringbone stitch in purple and orange on my latest finished embroidery, it was a useful stitch to cover up some of the glue residue left on the velvet from some painted bondaweb!

Janet M worked this lovely piece in shades of pink on a hand dyed fabric, experimenting with scale and types of threads. Hopefully it'll join her webs and wheels piece which is now framed in a hoop hanging in her home:

I think the below was worked by Pam, who brought it to the Summer Party. If I'm wrong, please let me know!

Winsome experimented with bright colours to work this fly stitch sample:

Bernadette made this card featuring lovely flowers in a garden:

We hope you're enjoying working the stitches, and would love to see any way you've used them, even if they're not the most recent stitch of the month! This month we're working on buttonhole stitch and Rosette of Thorns
