For my June block I used Sharon’s block 30.
With a pattern already designed, it makes it so much easier to assemble everything.
I chose to embroider a blue wren this month.
Using a single DMC thread can seem daunting but the work goes quite quickly.
The green curved line was done with Sailor’s stitch No. 56-Fly stitches were added.
The green leaf below is No. 1-Fly stitch using an irregular boucle thread.
The right side of the tree trunk was done with wrapped cord in No.110-Rope stitch. I needed a crowbar to get the cord through the fabric and wouldn’t attempt it again.
The heart features Cross stitch and No.66, a Coral outline.
