National Sewing Month

Day 19

Lady Bird’s Bzzy Garden, and Lady Bird 2 by Christen Brown

I used the same printed fabrics for each of the above wall hangings. On the first I used black as an accent color. The border row stitches were all worked in black, with the decorative and detail stitches worked in the same colors as the fabrics. In the second piece I used cream as an accent color, including in a variety of cotton laces. The border row, decorative and detail stitches are all worked in different colors.

These two pieces can be found in The Embroidery Book, by C&T Publishing.

Happy Stitching, ~Christen
