Has it been two weeks already? I can’t believe we’re already on to block four, but here it is! Download the PDF pattern here or the JPG image here. This new block uses the Back Stitch, Lazy Daisy Stitch and Satin Stitch from before and also incorporates the new Double Cross Stitch and Long and Short Stitch we learned this week.
I hope you enjoy this new block as much as I have, I think it is one of my favorites so far! Also, if you’re worried about not having enough thread, feel free to use the Back Stitch to outline the roof instead of filling it in with Satin Stitch.
I realized when drawing this block that I didn’t include a neutral thread in our color scheme! Oops. So, I’ve stitched the tree in orange, but feel free to add a brown to you threads if you want.
And here’s the stitch diagram:
The birdie is worked in the Long and Short Stitch in two colors of blue, here’s a little diagram of how I worked the stitches:
