I was the last person to work on Ritva’s block for the round robin at Fibre Fever. Her block arrived at my home with Zurn’s and Hideko’s lovely stitches.
First I stitched a tree in stem stitches and added colonial knots to represent blossom. The threads are perle 12 and 8.
Feathered chain stitch in perle 5.
A combo of up and down feather stitch and slipped detached chain stitches. The threads are cotton a broder and stranded floss.
