Yesterday I promised to share the details of the embroidery on my Easter egg after damp stretching, so here they are.
The detached chain stitches at the top are now decorated with a colonial knot. The double row of running stitch is laced twice with cotton a broder.
The herringbone stitch is turned into a double herringbone stitch.
The row at centre is made of twisted satin stitch (TAST stitch 89), detached chain stitch and colonial knots. The purple lines are alternating stem stitch.
Now I only have to turn it into an ornament.
The free pattern for this Easter egg is available at NeedleKnowledge.
