Show Me the Way – Plant Detail Close-up

In this close-up you can see how I’ve used filler stitches of different sizes going different directions to give the impression of different parts of the green plant.

Notice how even areas using the same thread color and direction of stitching appear distinct because of the color variations  and the way bands of filler stitches merge.

    Wow! Before you started teaching me needlepoint, I thought “needlepoint” meant just the simple slanted half-cross stitch. How beautiful and interesting an art it is turning out to be!

    • Yes, that’s a popular misconception. But you can do needlepoint samplers the same way you can do embroidery samplers. If you’re tired of tent stitch (the slanted half-cross), there’s lots of fun to be had 🙂
