Easter Embroidery


I have a sweet Easter motif to share - this little chick alongside some decorated eggs. 

I used several different stitches on this project, I am sure you recognize many of them!
For the chick, I used the Stem Stitch for his outline.  I used Fly Stitch for his feathers and his eye is done with Satin Stitch and Straight Stitch for the lashes.


The lavender egg is also outlined with Stem Stitch.  The decorative lines are done with Herringbone Stitch, Whipped Blanket Stitch {edged with a Back Stitch line} and Chain Stitch:


The pink egg and the mint egg are done with Stem Stitch and French Knots.  I used a Back Stitch for the little flower in the pink egg.  I had only used one strand of floss on the flower and it looked way too thin!  Rather than take it back out and start over, I whipped it with another strand of floss - I like the effect!


I love these beautiful spring colors in the palette I used:







Here are the color numbers:
