Alrighty then...




Roses are red, violets are blue, this poem is bitchin' and so are you.


I started working on this back in November 2013. The flowers are taken from colouring pages, and the font I used is called Learning Curve.

I feel like my stitching came on leaps and bounds making this. I had a few false starts where the text just looked awful and like chicken scratches. Then I decided to give stem stitch a try and voila! Lovely neat text! I'm pretty much in love with stem stitch now. The whole thing is stem stitched with a few French knots to dot the i's.

Here is the video I learned stem stitch from.
If you're learning to stitch you should check out Needle n' Thread, Mary is a great teacher and there are video tutorials for pretty much every stitch you can think of, plus loads of advice!


Thanks for stopping by!
