Day 23 – Make a Laurel

I must admit, I am a little embarrassed to show you how little I have done. But I’ve been stitching like a mad woman! This is 2 hours work so maybe I stitch super slowly? I’m not sure.

Sorry about the creases! I have been taking it to work to get some done on my lunch break.

I stitched the start of a laurel wreath thing. I am going to base it off the Leafy one of these. I realised how unpractised I was at stem stitch! I think it looks okay. It will look better when it is covered with leaves and things. I definitely need to practise it more though.

I haven’t forgotten that I promised a pattern… It is coming. I just haven’t decided whether or not to add flowers to it yet. We will see 🙂
