Thimblenest Thursdays: Summer/Winter Stitchalong, Week 3

Here we are, halfway through the Summer/Winter Stitchalong, though thankfully not halfway through summer itself! The next two weeks are all about stitching the letter "T", and is this ever a fun one!

First grab your AUTUMN "T" embroidery pattern, and then let's take closer look at the colors and stitches I used.

For the letter "T":

Outline: 3 strands, DMC 154, chain stitch

Inside of the T: 3 strands, DMC 154 and 720. I used "laid stitch with cross-stitch couching", which was really fun. It went quickly, but I think it gives a nice, clean look when finished. I followed these directions (scroll down the page).

Thistles: 3 strands, DMC 327, 728, & 3852, stem stitch.

As always please share this or any other Feeling Stitchy-inspired embroidery projects in the Flickr Group or on Instagram with #feelingstitchy!

Hi, I'm Wendy - I've been embroidering since age 9 when my grandma gave me some blank tea towels and a set of Aunt Martha’s transfers. I blog at ThimbleNest.
