Stitchalong – Fly Stitch Update 2

Well we’re almost three weeks into the stitchalong and I’m nearly done with my stitching. How far along are you?

I added two colors to my palette as the original pinks were all so close in color. I chose a shade from Sublime Stitching’s Flowerbox palette, #206 ‘In Bloom’, as well as DMC #3854. Here’s what they look like combined:

I absolutely love these colors together. I will endeavor to use them together again as they are perfect for thread blending and shading.

I added a stitch of dark pink under the yellow tops of my trumpet flowers to give the shadow more depth, which makes the tops pop!

Here’s another close up of the blended colors – the lazy daisy stitches have colored centers.

At the end of the month I’ll post a round up of photos from Instagram – so get stitching and sharing if you haven’t already – use #newleafstitchalong on Instagram to show off your progress and stitching prowess!
