Still Stitching

It has been a long time since I last posted, but I am still working on my Year of Stitches 2017.  I have two projects going at present. First is the sampler type I started January 1st featuring different stitches. The second piece is a shared 5" x5" piece. It was done with one of my fellow Tampa Bay Surface Design Guild members. Below are pictures of both the sampler and the 5' x 5".

The stitches on the sampler are varied and dimensional using regular embroidery threads and specialty threads, some I dyed myself.

On this piece I did the moss in the upper right corner, the blue stitches which look like Xs and the 3D flower in the lower left.
