SAL 11: Something fishy….

Hello everyone, and what a blustery last few days we have had. I have been fairly productive over the last three weeks – but not so much on my little fish! This is what he looked like last time….


After spending quite a while on the long and short stitch to cover the body (not my favourite stitch) – I then had to cover it all up with a lazy daisy stitch. I am not sure that you will notice much difference.


Once the fish had both been entirely covered – I then applied glue to the backs and cut them out. The white patches in the stitched fish are not gaps but the lighter stitching beneath the lazy daisy stitch.


Finally I covered one of the padded fish with the embroidery and now my fish looks like this………


Thank you for popping in. Happy stitching and I hope to see you all in another 3 weeks.

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew. I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....
