Embroidery Flower with braided chain stitch by Handiworks ...... such a great tutorial.

Hand embroidery is such a
pleasant pass time and so
relaxing.  Just look at what you
can achieve .. This has an Asian 
influence I feel.......

This is such an unusual way of chain stitching but look at the results for filling in flowers and stems. This reminds me of some of the work that I saw at the Victoria & Albert museum in the Asian section and it has influenced me with some sketching that I have been playing with. I will talk more about that when I get my few days to design.  Wandering around this section of stunning fabrics and taking photos has given me some lovely ideas to design some things of my own.  

Why not make a warm drink and watch this little tutorial which is around 18 minutes long but it is so worth the watch and shows you what can be achieved, plus the music that accompanies this tutorial is so relaxing as well. I thoroughly recommend this to be watched to the end as I did .....

Hope you all have the most lovely weekend and see you here on Monday.

Happy Stitching! XX
