I am starting an Easter egg stitching project. I am stitching this egg onto white fabric. The egg features a ribbon at the top, decorative lines and some flowers at the base. There are a lot of opportunities for color:
I am settling in on this color scheme - light and dark greens, pinks, blues and purples. I have a yellow for the flower centers and of course white for the egg :)
I used perle cotton for the egg outline. I am stitching the ribbon in the light purple cotton floss, this is such a pretty color!
To fill the ribbon, I am using lines of split stitch. I used the back stitch in green to add a decorative line to the egg. I like the look that two shades of green give this:
Here is a close up of the split stitching:
I will post some more pictures as I progress!
