Hand Embroidery

Over the four weeks in stitch workshop we had extra work to learn some hand embroidery stitches. I already knew some basic ones but learning the more decorative stitches were really interesting. I found the hand stitching very therapeutic. I like the idea of spending the extra time on a hand stitched piece and I feel it creates a different feel.

I like the stitches with the combined colours due to the complex look they hold. I would like to continue using these stitches throughout my work as it shows a level of craftsmanship different to machine stitching.
