Turkey Work Hand Embroidery Stitch



Good Morning all!


I have found this wonderful tutorial by Mary Corbet on an embroidery stitch called Turkey stitch.

I had never heard or seen this before.  I think it would be amazing as grass in between a flower border on an embroidered piece.  I am going to be practising this one later.

You could make a fantastic garden in embroidery with this...... Or a bee! yes I found an amazing picture of a bee worked in this stitch, it is not my work and I am afraid I do not know who to credit it too but Wow!

Take a look and have a go yourself...







Look at the detail on this bee, I do not know what the actual size is but 
if you could scale it to be stitched around a flower sampler it would look
amazing!

Watch the tutorial it really is worth learning this stitch.







The possibilities are endless!.... Happy Stitching!
